National Drown Prevention Month

WHEREAS, anyone involved with young children need to be aware of how to prevent drownings; and

WHEREAS, the City of Brentwood, through a variety of aquatic education programs has taken a pro-active stance to reduce drownings; and

WHEREAS, drownings and near-drownings are preventable;

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the City Council of the City of Brentwood, proclaim May as National Drown Prevention Month and encourage all citizens to participate in raising their awareness of Drown Prevention techniques to avoid these kinds of tragedies in our community.
