Each year too many West Australians lose their life through drowning death. The real tragedy is that all of these deaths are preventable!
Water safety education is a critical part of the collective task of reducing the burden of drowning deaths in Western Australia. Community Health investigates drowning deaths to identify at-risk community groups to deliver water safety and drowning prevention programs.
Royal Life Saving WA currently runs the following community education and awareness programs:
All of these programs provide at-risk community groups with the knowledge and skills to prevent drowning deaths, near-drowning incidents and associated injuries — turning everyday people into everyday lifesavers.
The Royal Life Saving Society WA is committed to reducing the burden of drowning on the Western Australian COMMUNITY by HELPING families impacted by a drowning or near-drowning accident.
