Drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional death among children ages 1 to 4 years and children 10 to 14 years.
Seventy-five percent of drownings and near-drownings happen in pools, with children 4 years old or under. Active adult supervision and layers of protection such as door alarms and a fence around the pool itself can lower the risk for your child. Download this brochure for helpful tips to keep your child safe in and around the water.
