Safety Around the Water – Drowning Prevention Program

A large percentage of children drown within 6–10 feet of safety. Most of these drownings happen because of a lack of basic water safety knowledge and skills. If children possess even the most basic swimming skills, their risk of drowning decreases substantially. Learning the basic skills outlined in these lesson plans builds a sense of accomplishment in children and helps prevent drownings.
