Turn the Tides on Drowning
Every day, about 10 people die from drowning. For children ages 1-4, drowning is the leading cause of accidental death, with rates even surpassing those of traffic accident fatalities. Every child who dies from drowning, another five receive emergency department care for nonfatal water-related incidents.
Drowning is a complex public health issue that requires a multifaceted prevention approach. Chandler Aquatics and Chandler fire respond to the needs of our community by providing education, practical training programs, and initiatives essential to promote the safety and wellbeing of our children.
