Make a Splash – Water Safety Day

Make a Splash is the national child-focused water safety initiative of the USA Swimming Foundation. Nine people drown every day in the U.S. the Safe & Healthy Children’s Coalition in collaboration with many agencies in Collier County wants to change that statistic by  raising awareness of the importance of water safety this summer by  hosting the first Make a Splash – Water Safety Day in Collier County!

In 2012 the Coalition hosted two “Make a Splash” Water Safety Days, a mock drowning and rescue, water safety talk and CPR demonstration were conducted  for 225 Immokalee freshmen high school children.  A similar program was done at the Boys and Girls Club of Collier County for 150 middle and high school children.
