Promote proper hand washing by talking about germs, looking at germs (with the black light). We wash our hands together then check them again(germs are gone) We sing the “Scrub Club” song as we wash.

We promote sun safety to the swimming pool staff. We provide signage, sunscreen and educational materials. We also help fund shade structures. We encourage all pools to adopt a sun safe policy.
Most of the time pool patrons look up to the pool staff so by having them promote sun safety, it reflects onto the pool patrons. It also benefits the pool staff by protecting themselves from the sun.
