Splash Campaign promotes water safety

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Georgia First Lady Sandra Deal kicks off her Splash Campaign.

It's an effort to promote safety in all bodies of water.

Kids at the Albany Area YMCA certainly made a splash today.

The Y stresses water safety year-round.

During Spring break kids often participate in a camp that teaches safety while providing fun pool time for children.

"At the end of the week when we don't see them anymore have they learned safety habits, have they learned reach or throw don't go have they learned don't just pack it wear your jacket,"

The kids must also go through a swim test everyday at the pool so lifeguards know how well each child can swim.
