The Cape Coral Police Department, Cape Coral Fire Department, Cape Coral Yacht Club Pool and Parks and Recreation will be coordinating the Water Safety Day Event on Saturday, June 5th 2021 from 10 am – 1 pm at the Cape Coral Yacht Club Ballroom.
This will be the 8th Annual event which promotes all aspects of water safety in our community. We are reaching out to children and their parents in an effort to educate them in a fun and interesting way.
Sadly, the impetus for this event was the many drownings of toddlers in pools in Cape Coral. We hope by holding such an event raises awareness in our community of the dangers that go along with recreational water use, in a way that makes for a really fun day for the kids!
Some of the day’s events will be:
- CPR Demonstration
- Paddling Safety Demo
- Sun Safety
- Safety Precautions Around the Pool
- Drowning Prevention
- Life Jacket Fittings (waiting on this)
- Rescue Dive Gear
- “Passport Cards” to be completed at each table where kids learn a water safety lesson
- Prizes and Giveaways (Poster Contest/Passport Card Winners/Raffles)
