  • National Water Safety Month - Sample Proclamations

    Good Afternoon,

    May is National Water Safety Month! The CPRS Aquatics Section is planning a social media campaign and other resources to share once May arrives.

    In the meantime, if your agency is interested in officially recognizing May as National Water Safety Month, we have attached a few proclamation templates for use. We know that many cities and agencies need time to add proclamations to meeting agendas, etc., so we wanted to share this information sooner rather than later.

    Other FREE resources can be found online here:
    https://www.apsp.org/nwsm/Professionals/Free-Resources

    Stay tuned for more info headed your way!  If you have any questions, please let us know. Thanks so much!

    Have a great day,
    Stephanie

  • National Water Safety Month - Sample Proclamations

    Good Afternoon,

    May is National Water Safety Month! The CPRS Aquatics Section is planning a social media campaign and other resources to share once May arrives.

    In the meantime, if your agency is interested in officially recognizing May as National Water Safety Month, we have attached a few proclamation templates for use. We know that many cities and agencies need time to add proclamations to meeting agendas, etc., so we wanted to share this information sooner rather than later.

    Other FREE resources can be found online here:
    https://www.apsp.org/nwsm/Professionals/Free-Resources

    Stay tuned for more info headed your way in the coming weeks. If you have any questions, please let us know. Thanks so much!

    Have a great day,

    • All governmental agencies are subject to FLSA and shall follow all child labor provisions, including having a Certificate of Age to verify permissible employment (29 CFR Section 212).
