Digital Dialogue: Swim safety

RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Now that summer is almost here, and temperatures have already soared into the 90s, people will be taking to the pools and traveling to beaches.

Experts say fun and safety should be at the forefront of every person’s mind, and to help you out, NBC12 is hosting a Digital Dialogue at 7 p.m. Thursday on swim safety.

Joining in the conversation will be Chrissy Fandel, the aquatics director at the YMCA of Greater Richmond. Her experience at the Y includes being a life guard, a swim instructor and a swim team coach.

Also on our panel is Jonathan McNamara with the American Red Cross, who will talk about their aquatics program and efforts to help teach people to swim/stay safe.

You can ask questions about swim safety on Facebook Live or observe the conversation on the NBC12 news app, on Amazon Fire or Roku.
