With the hot summer season drawing near, it is critical for children to be equipped with the knowledge and skills to safely enjoy recreation time in the water. To coincide with International Water Safety Day on May 15, Shanghai Disney Resort today delivered key water safety messages to local school children through "Disney Wild About Safety - Safety Smart® In the Water!"

In partnership with the Pudong Education Safety Affairs Administration Center and the Administrative Commission of Shanghai International Tourism and Resorts Zone, over 30 VoluntEARS from Shanghai Disney Resort brought the "Safety Smart® In the Water!" program to the children at Yuanxi Primary School in Chuansha, Pudong, where Shanghai Disney Resort is located. Over 300 students aged between nine and ten watched the animated educational short film, "Safety Smart® In the Water!" and engaged in water safety interactive exercises with resort VoluntEARS. Each student received a "Disney Wild About Safety – Safety Smart® In the Water!" certificate after the event to recognize the concepts they learned about water safety.

This program is part of Shanghai Disney Resort's Wild About Safety series of community programs and it marks the first time the resort team has brought water safety education to local schools, following the successful fire prevention-themed events in the past two years during national Fire Prevention Day. The animated Safety Smart® film series was developed by Disney Educational Productions in cooperation with Underwriters Laboratories Inc., and leverages Disney's characters and storytelling capabilities as well as Underwriters Laboratories Inc. long-term expertise in safety knowledge to provide valuable lessons to youth.

International Water Safety Day is dedicated to helping spread global awareness of water safety and to educate youth about how to be safe in and around water. The animated Safety Smart® film series is available in 35 languages, including Chinese. Through the films and interactive educational activities for children, Shanghai Disney Resort aims to increase awareness and emphasize the importance of water safety among young children in the local community, ensuring them a safer summer season.
