The Drowning Prevention Coalition and the many partnering agencies in the community will observe April Pools Day on April 17, 2010 at various times and locations throughout the city. The Coalition encourages all citizens throughout the area to understand our slogan of Respect the Water… Children Drown in Silence.
The Drowning Prevention Coalition wants to promote, develop and support training and community education efforts that prevent drowning, near drowning and other water related incidents in the El Paso County and surrounding areas.
This first ever community coalition wants all El Pasoans to attend an April Pools Day event on April 17, 2010 at 30 different pools in the area, free of charge, that is geared to focus individuals throughout the city to remember to Respect The Water.
Other marquee events in the upcoming months will be the Gus and Goldie 30 Year Anniversary Party on May 1 at Basset Place and many other signature events as many outdoor pools open to the public Memorial day Weekend.
