Drowning Prevention

There is nothing more precious to most all of us than our children.  Unfortunately, children and water can be a fatal combination. Drowning is a quick, silent event. A child can drown in as little as two inches of water.  The good news is that this does not have to happen to your child! Drowning deaths can be prevented if the right action steps are taken.

Children’s Hospital Orange County (CHOC) has teamed with Kohl’s to produce a water safety program.  Click on the “CHOC Children’s” logo below to go to the CHOC Water Safety Program webpage.  There, you will find simple, common-sense steps you can take that might save the life of a friend’s child, a relative’s child…or even your own. Spend five minutes to avoid “three tragic seconds.”
