As you prepare for 4th of July celebrations, please remember that water safety should be the first item on your list! If your celebration is in, on or around water, please assign a Water Watcher. A Water Watcher in an adult who supervises the water without distractions.
Whether you’re a parent with a backyard pool or an adult who enjoys a day at the beach, drowning prevention and water safety education should always be a priority.
We can end drowning in our lifetime. Public awareness and education focused on young children is the most powerful tool to prevent fatal and non-fatal drowning.
