Drowning Prevention Month

Together, let’s make sure not one more child drowns!

With pools, lakes and beaches all around us in Central Florida, it’s no surprise that Florida leads the country in drowning deaths of children ages 1 to 4.

The good news is that drowning is preventable, and the YMCA of Central Florida is committed to helping keep kids safe in and around water this summer.

May is National Drowning Prevention Month, so there is no better time to learn to swim. All month long, we’re hosting free water safety activities, including free drowning prevention lessons for kids at select YMCAs.
