Child Safety

Water Safety & Drowning Prevention

Drowning is the leading cause of death for Arizona’s children from ages 1-5 and yearly there are twice as many adult drownings.

There is no noise, no screaming, no splashing, only silence when a child drowns.

Death is just one outcome of a drowning. In some incidents, a child will survive but can be left with neurological impairment requiring long-term care. Learn more from a family who shared their story.

Banner Children's wants to keep you and your family safe around the swimming pool, the lake, the ocean and other fun water spots.

To help remind parents, babysitters and other responsible adults about their role in keeping kids safe, Banner Children’s created the Banner Children’s Lifeguard on Duty Program.

To receive a Banner Children's Lifeguard on Duty Wristband, call 602-230-2273 (CARE).
