Three trade organizations, the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals, the National Recreation & Park Association, and the World Waterpark Association, have designated May 2009 as National Water Safety Month, according to a recent press release.

These organizations represent businesses and other individuals and agencies involved in bringing safe, enjoyable aquatic activities to the American public, from home pools and spas, to waterparks and resorts, to public swimming and water recreation facilities. National Water Safety Month will be celebrated through educational programs, public service announcements, governmental proclamations, dealer and business promotions, and the distribution of water-safety-themed materials, aimed primarily at the public, and designed to prevent drowning and water-related illness and injuries.

Detailed information about National Water Safety Month, for both consumers and businesses, can be found at the sites of the sponsoring organizations: www.apsp.org, www.waterparks.org, and www.nrpa.org.
