In cel­e­bra­tion of Wa­ter Safety Month, the Charles County Depart­ment of Com­mu­nity Ser­vices is of­fer­ing free pro­grams for res­i­dents and their fam­i­lies dur­ing the month of May.

Pro­grams in­clude, “Do Your Part, Be Wa­ter Smart,” an Amer­i­can Red Cross pro­gram, a swim les­son marathon and a CPR party.

In May, res­i­dents who sign the Wa­ter Safety Month pledge will re­ceive one free day of swim­ming at any one of the pools op­er­ated by com­mu­nity ser­vices. Pledgees must agree to never swim alone, al­ways obey all pool rules, stay away from drains and suc­tion fit­tings, and al­ways en­ter the pool feet first.
