It’s the summer time when the temperatures soar people look for relief in the form of water play but it’s important to remember that every year hundreds of people die from preventable drowning or are hospitalized because of a near drowning.
If you think that you are safe because you don’t own a backyard pool or frequent the summer cottage, you’re mistaken. Drowning can occur anywhere including bathtubs and playgrounds with water features.
Drowning doesn’t look like what we believe drowning to look like. Please take a minute to review these key drowning facts and some basic prevention tips.
Be responsible. Talk with your children about water safety and learn the facts for yourself.
