May is National Water Safety Month

Governor Polis has declared May to be National Water Safety Month.

National Water Safety Month takes place annually each May. This designation has been made in recognition of the popularity of swimming and other water-related recreational activities in the United States, and the resulting need for ongoing public education on safer water practices, including swim lessons, the buddy system, parental supervision, following the posted rules, and always being “water aware.” To view the full proclamation, click here.  For more information on water safety, click here.
