NATIONAL DROWNING PREVENTION WEEK PROCLAMATION 2021

WHEREAS the mission of the Lifesaving Society Canada is to prevent drowning throughout this great country, and even one drowning in Alberta is one too many; and

WHEREAS most drownings are preventable in a Water Smart community, and only through Water Smart education and a healthy respect for the potential danger that any body of water may present can we genuinely enjoy the beauty and recreation opportunities offered by these bodies of water; and

WHEREAS the Lifesaving Society urges Canadians and residents of the Village of Girouxville

to supervise children who are in and around the water, to refrain from drinking alcoholic beverages while participating in aquatic activities, and to always wear a lifejacket when boating; and

WHEREAS the Lifesaving Society Canada has declared July 18th – 24th, 2021 National Drowning Prevention Week to focus on the drowning problem and the hundreds of lives that could be saved this year.

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED THAT I, Alain Dion, Mayor on behalf of Council, do hereby proclaim July 18th – July 24th, 2021 NATIONAL DROWNING PREVENTION WEEK in the Village of Girouxville and do commend its thoughtful recognition to all citizens of our municipality.
