August is Drowning Awareness Month

This month is Drowning Impact Awareness Month, and the Tucson Fire Department (TFD) reminds you that water can be deadly every minute of every day, all year long.

TFD is stressing its safety message of the ABCs of drowning prevention. "A" is for adult supervision. Watch children at all times. "B" is for barriers. Have a fence that encloses the pool or spa and make sure the gates close and latch automatically. "C" is classes for swimming and CPR. Knowing CPR allows the parent or nearby person to be a first responder.
