Did you know that around 20% of Americans can’t swim at all, and about 56% of us can’t swim properly and safely enough to save themselves or another in a drowning situation? According to the CDC, approximately 3,536 people drown each year in pools and other non-boating-related accidents. Sadly, of the total number of accidental drownings, approximately one in five victims are aged 14 our younger.
We don;t highlight these statistics to scare you, but alert you to the very real fact that these drownings are completely, 100% preventable! Some estimates indicate that the chance of drowning at a pool protected by lifeguards can be less than one in 24 million. We want to give you that piece of mind at your next pool event. When you have a million things going through your head already, leave the water safety to the professionals. There is no doubt that trained, professional lifeguards have had a positive effect on drowning prevention in the United States.Book Now
