A Local Public Service Announcement

LOCAL PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

Troop 975 presents a public service announcement warning about drowning. This PSA is scheduled to air on Vacaville public television (channel 26). Drowning is still a serious problem. This astonishing video begins with a cinematic representation and ends with an interview with Nadina Riggsbee. It was produced for the Vacaville Public Information Office and written and directed by Brandon Kalinowski for his Eagle project in 2012.

POOL SAFELY PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS

Pool Safely has worked cooperatively with several leading pool and spa industry leaders to create public service announcements and educational videos that can be easily downloaded and used by anyone who is interested in providing drowning and drain entrapment prevention messages to clients, contacts or staff.  Drain Covers and Your Safety is now available for you to download. This two-minute video was produced to support public education about compliance with the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool & Spa Safety Act.  In addition, the National Swimming Pool Foundation, featured in the video, has a FREE online training course for proper pool and spa inspections for compliance with the VGB P&SSAct.  Register at www.nspf.org to take this course at no cost.

As a reminder, Pool Safely has a seven-part educational video in English and Spanish that is available on our website: www.PoolSafely.gov/videos/.  The Pool Safely public service announcements can be viewed on YouTube or in hard copy by contacting poolsafely@cpsc.gov.
