The Auburn School District Pool held “April Pools Day” on Saturday. The free community event promoted water safety and drowning prevention.

Participants learned basic reaching and throwing assists, boating and lifejacket safety, hypothermia awareness and other valuable safety skills.

Refreshments were served and prizes given away.

The event is a good way to prepare kids and adults for safe fun in and around the water.

“There is no better way to start off the swimming season than to focus on family fun, physical activity and ways to stay safe in the water,” said Dr. David Fleming, director and health officer for Public Health – Seattle & King County.
