DROWNING STATISTICS

Drowning is the leading cause of death in kids under five in the OC. Three children die every day as a result of drowning. Our goal is help families become more aware of prevention measures so we can stop losing any more lives to drowning.

The Orange County Fire Authority’s ABCs offer three simple but vital steps to drowning prevention:

A - Active Adult Supervision

B - Barriers Around Pools and Spas

C - Classes

Our campaign runs multi-language PSAs to remind people to always watch their children near water. Here are a few that you can use for yourself, your family and friends, or your organization:
