The Water Safety Council of Fresno County was first established in 1982 by the Fresno County Board of Supervisors and Fresno City Council as the Water Safety Task force. Its purposes are the promotion of water safety education and awareness to prevent drowning injury and death, and legislative advocacy to promote water safety. The Fresno Metropolitan Flood Control District is one of the founding members and ongoing sponsors. Visit www.watersafe.org to learn more.
