The International Swimming Hall of Fame and the
Independent Pool & Spa Service Association will join
existing partners in their support of the second annual
National Water Safety Month, which will take place in May
Established in 2009 to help spread the message of
aquatic safety, National Water Safety Month began as a
joint effort of the Association of Pool & Spa
Professionals, the National Recreation & Park
Association, and the World Waterpark Association.
Partnering organizations represent individuals, businesses
and agencies involved in bringing safe, enjoyable aquatic
activities to the American public, from home pools and
spas, to water parks and resorts, to public swimming and
water recreation facilities.
This year National Water Safety Month will be celebrated
through educational programs, public service announcements,
governmental proclamations, dealer and business promotions,
and the distribution of water-safety-themed materials aimed
primarily at the public, and designed to prevent drowning
and water-related illness and injuries.
Detailed information for both consumers and
professionals will be available soon at
