Avoiding accidents at beaches, swimming pools or lakes depends on all of us. You have to enjoy the water, but taking safety precautions such as choosing the most appropriate environments for bathing, especially if we are talking about the elderly and children.
Launched by Fundación MAPFRE for the third straight year, the campaign strives to offer society the most important prevention information and guidelines: how to act in an emergency; a basic knowledge of first-aid techniques; and basic techniques for surviving in the water and applying cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
It has also published the Rapid Guide: This Summer, Enjoy Our Aquatic Spaces in Safety, which can be downloaded in our digital edition.
The 2017 campaign was launched last June on the beaches of Gandia (Valencia).
