THE WORLD IS 71% WATER.
ARE YOUR KIDS 100% PREPARED?
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO is a campaign centered on educating our communities about dangers of drowning and important rules of water safety.
Studies have shown that minority children are three times more likely to drown. Studies indicate that 60% of all African-American children are unable to swim. Today, a residential pool is 14 times more likely to the take the life of a child than an automobile.
The YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas, Children’s Health, Alliance Data, the Safe Kids Greater Dallas, and Independent Pool and Spa Service Association (IPSSA) are committed to providing communities with effective swim safety presentations and on-going educational information. The YMCA and our vital partners in this initiative are committed to keeping children safe in and around water, and providing knowledge needed to prevent potentially dangerous and fatal situations.
