IWSD Prompts House of Representatives to Act

United States House of Representatives formally acknowledges that water safety education should be included in primary and secondary schools. (H.RES.658)

May 15, 2012, marked the Inaugural International Water Safety Day prompting the United States House of Representative via H.RES.658 to formally acknowledge that water safety education should be included in primary and secondary schools. The day was celebrated with water safety tips and lessons by life guards, teachers and swimmers from around the world, including Olympic Great Anthony Ervin and the Michael Phelps Foundation, all striving to make a planet that’s 70 percent water, 100 percent water safe.

This important congressional resolution brings annual in-classroom water safety education on May 15th a step closer for schools across the nation. It also strengthens the critical advocacy work conducted by the water safety community.
