WATER RELATED ACCIDENTS ARE THE SECOND LEADING CAUSE OF ACCIDENTAL DEATH FOR KIDS OF AGES 4 TO 19.
We need your support to educate children to be safe in the water. Help kids become AquaSMART!
The success of this program is evidenced by the fact that this is its' 12th year. We also have a number of consistent teachers; one even received a national award from the National Water Safety Congress. In 2003, the Department received a National award for the poster contest from the National Safe Boating Council.
Cal Boating discovered that although this program is not mandatory, teachers find it important enough to incorporate it into their already overwhelming curriculum requirements. When it was inaugurated in 1993 about 500 students participated. Since then, there has been a tenfold increase in participation.
