Drowning Prevention Tips
Southern California's beautiful beaches and sparkling pools are part of what make it one of the most desirable places in the country to live, work and play year round.

But water comes with the potential for great danger. Things like unattended tubs and buckets filled with shallow water are not often thought of as drowning dangers. But they should be.

The reality is that children, and even adults, can slip under the water silently and without much commotion. Even more frightening, drownings can sometimes occur even with a house full of adults and children.

Drowning is the nation’s leading cause of accidental death of children under the age of five, and the second leading cause of death from unintentional injuries for ages one to 14.

The majority of drownings occur in residential swimming pools and spas.

The Moreno Valley Fire Department encourages you and your loved ones to learn the ABC’s of pool safety. They could help prevent these tragedies.

A is for Adult Supervision: It is important to have an adult who knows how to swim carefully watch any water activity. Having more than one person available who can swim is always encouraged. Always keep a phone nearby to call 9-1-1.

B is for Barriers: In addition to adult supervision, you should install and maintain proper fencing around the pool and spa to isolate swimming areas from other areas of the home. Use multiple layers of protection including fences, gate/door alarms, and pool safety covers.

C is for Classes: Swimming lessons, first aid, and CPR classes can help you be better prepared in the event of an emergency. Do not rely on swimming aids like water wings, rafts or noodles for safety. Inform your children the dangers of improper water play and set guidelines and safety rules. Always keep a phone nearby to call 9-1-1.

Never leave children unattended around the water. Looking away for just a few seconds could result in a tragedy.
