National Drowning Prevention Week

National Drowning Prevention Week is July 21 – 27, 2019.

Whereas the mission of the Lifesaving Society Canada is to prevent drowning throughout this great country, and even one drowning in Alberta is one too many; and

Whereas most drowning are preventable in a Water Smart community, and only through Water Smart education and a healthy respect for the potential danger that any body of water may present can we truly enjoy the beauty and recreation opportunities offered by these bodies of water; and

Whereas the Lifesaving Society urges Canadians and residents of Sedgewick, Alberta to supervise children who are in and around the water, to refrain from drinking alcoholic beverages while participating in aquatic activities, and to wear a Personal Flotation Device or lifejacket at all times when boating; and

Whereas the Lifesaving Society Canada has declared July 21 – 27, 2019 National Drowning Prevention Week to focus on the drowning problem and the hundreds of lives that could be saved this year.

Therefore, be it resolved that I, Perry Robinson, Mayor, do hereby proclaim July 21 – 27, 2019 National Drowning Prevention Week in Sedgewick, Alberta and do commend its thoughtful recognition to all citizens of our community.
