The Georgetown Parks and Recreation Department will host a free Water Safety Day event from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturday, May 19, at the Georgetown Recreation Center outdoor pool, 1003 N. Austin Ave.
The educational family event is designed to increase public awareness about drowning prevention and water safety as we head into the summer swim season. Attendees will learn important safety topics such as drowning prevention, water rescue skills, and proper life jacket use.
Participating organizations include the Georgetown Fire Department, Georgetown Camp Goodwater, Georgetown Adventure Camp, Georgetown Learn to Swim, Colin’s Hope and the Army Corps of Engineers.
Once attendees visit all of the organizations, they will receive a discount on a seasonal swim pass or summer swim lessons. Attendees are also welcome to stay and swim, and daily pool fees will be waived for this event. Children age 6 and younger must have a guardian actively participating with them in the water at all times.
