MESA, AZ (CBS5) –
ZERO drownings is the goal as Cardon Children’s Medical Center partners with firefighters throughout Arizona to launch the 2012 Walk for Water Safety campaign.
Several fire departments and safety organizations from around the state, from Yuma to Sun City West, are participating in the 2012 Walk for Water Safety to educate the community about drowning prevention and work towards a common goal of ZERO drowning’s in 2012. They will be targeting 60,000 homes to distribute information about drowning prevention.
State wide fire departments and other local safety organizations are seeking volunteers to pick up and distribute Water Safety information packets. They are asking volunteers to distribute the packets throughout their neighborhoods on March 31, 2012. Volunteers can pick up as many Water Safety packets as they would like.
Volunteers will be able to pick up the information packets at their local fire departments. There is a list of participating fire departments at http://www.bannerhealth.com/CardonChildrensWaterWalk.
