A FEW GREAT READS 
Summer is just around the corner: Drowning Prevention 

This summer, across the state, families will take time to appreciate the beauty and joy of California’s waterways and recreation opportunities. This also makes spring and summer a good time to educate families that drowning and near-drowning incidents are preventable! 

Please remind families served by your programs to take steps to prevent a devastating incident from happening. In California, drowning is a leading cause of injury-related deaths among children under the age of five. Each year, near-drowning incidents result in life-long disabilities. The Department of Developmental Services (DDS) and the Drowning Prevention Foundation continue to raise awareness on this issue, and remind parents and caregivers that drowning is preventable
 
Water in California is precious and so are California’s children. Thank you for taking a part in Drowning Prevention this year!
