Our strategic plan focuses on water safety and drowning prevention initiatives that foster resilience in our communities while encouraging active participation in aquatic recreation.
It takes into account changes in the way we live, work, volunteer and enjoy leisure time. The strategies and projects are designed to be responsive to these evolving needs and trends.
Our strategic plan considers alignment to other strategic plans for water safety and emergency management. These include:
