Nationally recognized water safety advocate and president of Paragon Pools, Joseph M. Vassallo, CBP APSP Fellow states, "Water and water sports are an integral part of our lives whether it be in the bath, a pool, at the lake or beach. Our goal through the Float Like A Duck program is to prepare the entire family with water safety skills, practices and preventative measures to ensure every experience is an enjoyable one."
The 13th Annual Float Like A Duck™ is scheduled for Saturday, May 28, 2016 from 12 noon - 4 pm at the Heinrich YMCA Water Sports Park in Las Vegas, NV. The event is FREE, open to the public and features exhibits, hands-on activities, learn-to-float classes, and open swimming in the water park.
The annual event will focus on ENFORCING the ABC&D's of water safety, with a BIG emphasis on A-adult supervision. Encouraging that message throughout the summer, Float Like A Duck and Clark County teamed up to create a 30-sec PSA available to the media as well as to the public on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/
