Drowning and near drowning is a significant problem nationwide and in San Bernardino County. Drowning in and around the home is the leading cause of accidental death of children under 5 years of age. In the United States, drowning is cited as the second most common cause of death for adolescents. This project was undertaken to help establish a funding source to develop a drowning prevention program in San Bernardino County. A request for assistance was obtained from the California Center for Childhood Injury Prevention and the California Kids' Plates Program.
