Take Action

Time and time again, community action has proven to be an effective method for distributing Water Smart® messages directly to the public and ultimately changing behaviour. The leaders of the Lifesaving Society in communities throughout Canada - lifeguards and instructors - are uniquely qualified to take an active role in reaching the public directly and in making their communities safer and Water Smart.

The Society has resources to help deliver Water Smart messages in the community. Staging an event or activity is not as complicated as you might think, and it can be a lot of fun!
