Thanks to several donations and grants, the YMCA of Metropolitan Fort Worth has increased efforts to teach life-saving water safety skills this summer. Safety Around Water classes will be held at twenty apartment complexes with free sessions to teach children and adults in the apartments about staying safe around the pool. In addition, the YMCA held a free Water Safety Day on Memorial Day, opening all pools to the public and teaching water safety lessons at all eleven pools. The YMCA of Metropolitan Fort Worth also is partnering again with the Fort Worth Drowning Prevention Coalition to hold free classes at 2 YMCA pools this summer.
