Family Wellness Partners to Increase Water Safety

Family Wellness and the YMCA of Cass and Clay Counties have partnered with the Fargo and West Fargo Police Departments to reduce drowning and water safety related deaths by providing swim lessons to New Americans.

West Fargo and Fargo Police Departments are reaching out to students who will benefit from swim lessons and providing transportation, while YMCA and Family Wellness staff are providing the swim lesson instruction.

These swim lessons are being provided in response to the rising number of drowning or water safety related emergencies in our community. This is a continuation of the Fargo Moorhead area Aquatics Facilities commitment to water safety which started 3 years ago with the Free Community Water Safety Day event every June at numerous Fargo-Moorhead area pools.
