As we celebrate the unofficial end of summer this holiday weekend, we must remember that there is no such thing as a "drowning season." Water safety and drowning prevention efforts must remain 12 months a year.
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.
