Since May is nationally recognized as Drowning Prevention Month, the Coral Springs-Parkland Fire Department wants to make a splash when it comes to safety.
The drowning prevention event takes place on Sunday, May 22 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. This family-friendly event includes free entry to the Cypress Park pool and features a mix of educational and fun elements, including swim safety activities, CPR lessons, music, and prizes.
“Accidental drowning is the number one cause of death for children under four in Broward County,” Chief Michael McNally said. “As a father and fire chief, I recognize the importance of prioritizing water safety for children, parents and caregivers. Free community events, like the one we host, help raise awareness and spread the resources available to promote water safety for children.
At the event, the City of Coral Springs will be handing out Water Smart Broward swim coupons for free, low-cost swimming lessons to be used at Coral Springs pool facilities. Additionally, CPR instruction will be provided along with resources on how to become certified in CPR and first aid.
The City of Coral Springs, along with communities across the country, recognizes the importance of shining a light on safety and drowning prevention to work towards eliminating a preventable tragedy.
Cypress Park Pool is located at 1300 Coral Springs Dr.
