Kids around water need your undivided attention!

The Children’s Safety Zone collaborates with local fire departments, hospitals and media to gather statistics and stories on water related incidents and fatalities in Arizona. This site is dedicated to the fire and police departments that respond so quickly; to the hospital staff that helps mend our bodies; and to all the parents who assume the never-ending responsibility to protect and provide for our children. Drownings happen to the best of families. Don’t let yours be one of them. To learn more about Water Related Incidents, please review the publications developed by the Arizona Department of Health Services. [ADHS – Public Health Records on Water Related Incidents ]
