Water Safety

Now that the weather is getting warmer, it’s tempting to venture out into a local pool, take a trip to the beach, waterpark, lake or river. According to the World Health Organization:

  • Drowning is the third leading cause of unintentional deaths worldwide.
  • There are an estimated 236,000 drowning deaths per year worldwide.
  • Drownings account for 7% of all injury-related deaths.

Some ways to become more water safe include having barriers to restrict unauthorized access to pools, make sure children are well-supervised when in and around pools, learn how to swim, use lifejackets when warranted, and learn CPR. 

Let’s all have a fun and safe summer!
