Red Flag Water Safety

In the suRed Flag Water Safetymmer of 2017, a group of first responders along with the City of Holland and the Holland Aquatic Center launched a PSA video called Red Flag.

A red flag means there is a high risk of drowning. Swimmers should stay out of the water and away from piers. From 2010 to 2016, there have been 536* Great Lakes drownings. 

When you see a red flag, stop and think. Fight the peer pressure and encourage others around you to stay out. Think about your loved ones hearing the news that you drowned. 

Remember: Red means STOP. Stay out – Stay Alive!
