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!
