We live in a region surrounded by water. Drowning tragedies happen far too often here, and throughout the U.S. According to DCF Florida, 88 children lost their lives due to drowning in Florida alone in 2018. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), drowning is the number one cause of accidental death for infants and young children between the ages of 1-4. Survival swim lessons can prevent these tragedies and truly save lives.
As a drowning prevention resource for your family, I recommend a multi-layered approach towards water safety in your home.
“Even if your child has had swimming lessons, no child is drown-proof and there is absolutely no substitute for adult supervision.”
