Safe Pools Rule! Water Safety Campaign
Henderson Professional Fire Fighters created the Safe Pools Rule! campaign, a summer-long initiative for water safety and drowning prevention. The campaign goal is to increase awareness for the A, B, C, and Ds of drowning prevention: Adult supervision, pool Barriers, Classes like CPR and swim lessons, and Devices like life jackets. Henderson firefighters partner with Las Vegas firefighters and the Red Cross, to emphasize the importance of learning hands-only CPR.
Each year, Henderson firefighters reach over 8,000 households going door to door during a mass walk-and-knock. Firefighters and volunteers hand out door hangers on the A, B, C, and Ds of drowning prevention. A Public Service Announcement also runs on local television news and cable outlets throughout the summer, and firefighters provide interviews on pool safety tips.
