Ventura Family YMCA Partners with Nationwide Pool Safely Campaign

The Ventura Family YMCA is partnering with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission's Pool Safely campaign for this week.

Through the Ventura Y's social media sites, they will educate children and their parents about water safety tips for the prevention of child injuries and drownings, while also encouraging the community to participate in the Pool Safely Pledge online.

The Pool Safely campaign is a national public awareness week to help remind children and parents on the steps they should take for staying safe in and near water. Join the community by signing the Pool Safely Pledge online and by learning life-saving information through the Ventura Family YMCA.

Kids and their parents are able to sign the Pool Safely Pledge by clicking here. Learn pool safety tips through the Ventura YMCA's Facebook page by clicking here, on Twitter by clicking here or through Instagram by clicking here.

— Alicia Cattoni is the marketing director for the Ventura Family YMCA.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
