Mesa Community College will host the 15th annual Water Safety Day on March 25 from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

The event aims to bring awareness and educate families about drowning prevention as it is the leading injury-related cause of death for Arizona children ages five and under.

After four Valley children drowned last week, more than 1,000 first grade students will attend as part of a seven-week learning process, including curriculum.

Water Safety Day is an important event because it’s the “Official Kickoff to Swimming Season,” and includes evidence-based messages that are critically needed.

The event will include a live rescue demonstration, the Valley’s most unified display of public safety support with fire trucks and rescue boats, Build-A-Reminder workshops with La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries, and a singing firefighter show, puppetry show, and a large Kid Zone carnival area.
