Public Service Announcements (PSA's)



NWRA Committee on PSA's

A public service announcement (PSA) or public service ad, are messages in the public interest disseminated by the media without charge, with the objective of raising awareness, changing public attitudes and behavior towards a social issue.

We are in the process of forming a committee to create Water Safety Information and distribute it through PSA's.
