Public Education activities contribute to the mission of the Society by increasing awareness of the risks associated with activities in, on and around water and ice. The Lifesaving Society’s Public Education focus is on individuals who are unaware of Water Smart education, as well as on those who can make a difference, such as parents of young children. The Lifesaving Society delivers Water Smart education through the Society’s swim programs, the media and through various community action initiatives. The aim is to modify Alberta and Northwest Territories residents at-risk behaviours to eliminate drowning and water-related injury.
