NRPA is a collaborator with the Pool Safely campaign, a national education campaign from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC),  to promote the importance of water safety at park and recreation facilities nationwide. As a collaborator, NRPA encourages park and recreation professionals, along with parents, caregivers and children, to commit to be safer in and around the water.

Drowning is the number one cause of unintentional death among children ages 1-4; According to 2019 CPSC data, approximately 363 children tragically drown in pools and spas annually.
