As we head into May, the United States celebrates the popularity of swimming and other water-related activities. We do treat every month as water safety month, but take this opportunity to remind those homeowners with swimming pools how they can reinforce safe swimming all year round!

National Water Safety Month is an annual awareness campaign coordinated by The Association of Pool & Spa Professionals with support from the National Recreation & Parks Association, the American Red Cross and the World Waterpark Association. These organizations represent businesses and other individuals and agencies involved in bringing safe, enjoyable aquatic activities to the American public, from home pools and spas, to waterparks and resort, to public swimming and water recreation facilities. You can learn more at http://www.nationalwatersafetymonth.org.

Some of the events being hosted include the world’s largest swimming lesson, various classroom events and even a water safety fair. However, as we continue to promote the safe enjoyment of water, you can submit your own event ideas via nwsm@apsp.org to be shared on Facebook and through their newsletter!

From our family at Treasure Pools to yours, safe swimming today and every day!
