RivCo Water Safety Coalition
Our beautiful beaches and sparkling pools are part of what make Southern California one of the most desirable places in the country to live, work and play year-round.
But, water comes with the potential for great danger. Things like unattended tubs and buckets filled with water are not often thought of as drowning dangers. But they should be.
The reality is that children, and even adults, can slip under the water silently and without much commotion. Even more frightening, drownings can occur even with a house full of adults and kids.
We all think someone else is watching, right?
Because we all need to work together to avoid senseless tragedy, a coalition of partnering agencies throughout Riverside County have committed to the educating residents and visitors about the importance of water safety.
