A public information campaign with one simple goal - to reduce the number of child deaths that could have been prevented.
Learn about the common causes of avoidable child deaths and what you can do help keep our children safe.
Many Oklahoma children drown each year in bathtubs, swimming pools, ponds, ice chests, mop buckets, hot tubs, toilets, sinks and aquariums.
A parent turned his back for a minute. A caregiver thought someone else was looking after their child. They thought the pool or hot tub was secure. A couple inches of water and a child left alone are all it takes to create a tragedy. A responsible adult watching a child at all times is the best prevention to drowning and injuries.
What you can do:
Keep a constant eye of children playing in or near water.
Always stay within an arm's reach when a child is in or near the bathtub, toliet, pools, spas or buckets.
Never leave your child alone or in the care of older children around water; even if the child knows how to swim.
Empty bath tubs, buckest, ice chests and wading pools immediately after use.
Make sure toilet lids and doors to bathrooms and launcry rooms are kept closed; and toliet seats are locked.
Make sure children wear personal flotation devices or life jadckets around open bodies of water; such as lakes, ponds or creeks.
