Apache Junction Parks and Recreation, the Apache Junction Police Department and the Superstition Fire and Medical District are teaming up once again to hold the annual April Pool’s Day Water Safety event on Saturday, April 29, at the Superstition Shadows Aquatic Center.
There have already been 14 water related incidents in Arizona since Jan. 1, including six drownings, according to www.childrensafetyzone.com.
On April 29, our water safety instructors, lifeguards and a variety of other vendors will be on hand to teach your family about the importance of being safe around water and how we can prevent these incidents from happening.
The whole family can learn about home pool safety, boating safety and CPR. Enjoy a mini swim lesson, bounce house, raffles and much more. Swim Instructors will also be there from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. to evaluate your child’s swimming skills so that they can be registered in the proper level for swim lessons this summer. Maricopa County Sherriff’s Office will be on hand to teach participants about lifejacket and boating safety.
Air EVAC Services will be landing their helicopter at around 9:45 a.m.! Don’t miss it!
There will be free lunch and swimming for those who attend the whole event! You must have a wristband to swim and eat. Don’t miss this fun and informative event.
The free event begins with registration at 9:30 am; must have a wristband by 10:30 am to swim/eat. For more information, please call Parks at (480) 474-5240.
