PEOPLE DROWN WITHOUT A SOUND

TEACH YOUR KIDS TO SWIM, LEARN CPR

Swimming lessons are essential for every child in Los Angeles

In the movies, when people are “acting” like they’re drowning, there’s a lot of screaming and splashing. But that’s not reality. Drowning is nearly silent.

  • Water doesn’t have to be deep to be dangerous
  • Never leave children unattended near water
  • Always have a safety fence around your pool

In Los Angeles, it’s Always Swim Season

Unlike other parts of the country, we here in LA never have to close up our pools or drain our hot tubs or stay away from the beach. We live in the land of endless summer. It’s fantastic. But it’s also dangerous. Everyone who lives in LA has year round access to recreational swimming. And that means everyone who lives in LA should learn how to swim!

  • YMCA – Swim lessons for children and adults
  • Los Angeles City Recreation and Parks – Swim lessons designed for kids and their parents, with levels from the very beginning of water safety to advanced swimming techniques

Be a Hero. Learn CPR

There is no more effective way of helping someone who has stopped breathing or who’s heart has stopped, than CPR. And it is VERY easy to learn.

  • American Heart Association – The American Heart Association has CPR classes for individuals, groups, communities for varying levels of interest. This is the organization first responders and healthcare providers use to acquire CPR certification.
  • American Red Cross – The American Red Cross has been reaching CPR for as long as there has been CPR. You can also get certified in accompanying skills like First Aid and AEDs.
