Water safety is a year-round concern. The National Drowning Prevention Alliance takes water safety seriously and has provided resources to learn the 5 Layers of Protection. Drowning is the single leading cause of death in children ages 1 to 4 years old; it happens quickly and quietly, but these 5 Layers of Protection can help you and your loved ones stay safe. The 5 Layers of Protection are: barriers and alarms, supervision, water competency, life jackets, and emergency preparation.
