Riverside County has issued a Public Service Announcement urging residents to take steps to prevent drowning.
Drowning is the leading cause of unintentional or accidental injury-related death to children ages 1-4 years old in Riverside County.
The Riverside County EMS Agency is dedicated to preventing unintentional injuries to children in our county. The paramedics, fire fighters, law enforcement personnel, and hospital staff who work in our county know all too well the tragic results of a child's death from drowning. Childhood drowning can be eliminated because we know that childhood drowning is 100% preventable.
