Red Cross Says 48% Of Americans They Have Had A “Drowning Scare”: Learn Summer Safety

July 5th, 2009 · No Comments

A recent Red Cross survey found that almost one in two Americans have had a “drowning scare”. That’s a stat which grabs your attention and offers a good reason to review summer safety, which includes swimming and CPR/AED. See this American Red Cross webpage for more information. Swimmers of all ages and abilities can develop their water safety skills by contacting their local Red Cross chapter (which can also give you the confidence to respond in an emergency situation with skills that can save a life through their CPR and AED programs). To find your local chapter, enter your zip code in the far right column of this page.
