We want to educate families on one of the three leading causes of 100% preventable child death, drowning. Drowning can occur in places you don’t normally expect or in places where you’re not as much on your guard Pools, ponds, lakes, beaches, retention ponds, buckets, pet water dishes, bathtubs, toilets. Children up to 6 months can drown in as little
as 1 inch of water. We want to share tips with families on how to keep their children safe around water.
