Zero in on water safety 
11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Already this year there have been as many drowning incidents as there were in all of 2013. The Phoenix Aquatics Department and Phoenix Fire Department ask your help to zero in on water safety. Many children do not know how to swim or are not strong swimmers.  These children quickly find themselves in life threatening situations at pool parties.  Peer pressure is a factor in children literally getting in over their heads. Other children and even adults do not realize they are in distress until it is too late. Don't let another child become a statistic.  Swim lessons are appropriate for ALL ages. 
There will be swim lessons available and demonstrations of effective and ineffective flotation devices.
