Drowning is Preventable.

 

Reducing the Risk

You can reduce the odds of a drowning tragedy happening to someone you know or love. Wherever there is water, there is a risk of drowning. Reducing this risk is the key to preventing a water related incident.

Drowning Prevention Requires Action.  Follow the Safer 3

1.  Safer Water

  • Fences. Install proper barriers around all 4 sides of pools and spas.  Block access to water.
  • Alarms. In the event a barrier is breached, an alarm offers a second layer of protection.
