"The YMCA has long been a leader in aquatic safety and instruction. Nevertheless, we face a sad reality that drowning continues to be the second leading cause of unintentional injury death for children age 14 and younger," a YMCA spokesperson said. "To help bring awareness to water safety, the YMCA is asking you to pledge to be a Water Watcher."
I pledge to be a Water Watcher
To keep kids safe in and around the water
I AGREE TO:
Actively watch the children in and around water
Always keep my eyes on the water
Pull all children out of the water and call 911 in an emergency
Learn how to swim, and teach my children how to swim
