Social Media Toolkit

Water Safety

May is National Water Safety Month, and we want your help to empower communities with resources to keep Texas children, youth, and families safe where they live, work, and play!

For the month of May, we encourage you to promote water safety awareness with your networks. Our goal for this month is to reach as many individuals as possible to equip families with knowledge and resources to support water safety practices in Texas.

This toolkit includes daily messages to use in promoting water safety awareness, water safety resources, and sample water safety imagery to share and post.

These messages and links can be used as is or they can be customized in any way that works best for your community by directing to your prevention program’s information.
