DROWNING IS THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH OF CHILDREN UNDER 4 YEARS OF AGE!
Drowning prevention is the driving force behind Golden State Lifeguards and its strategic partner (Swimbrayv Foundation). Our goal is to share as much information with the community in regards to how drownings can be prevented. This is accomplished through aggressive public relations initiatives and through this program, countless numbers of children have been saved.
Golden State Lifeguards host many monthly events to promote drowning prevention in the San Fernando valley, Simi Valley, Conejo Valley and Los Angeles. In fact one of the most popular events is the “Coffee with the Chief” series which is held at local coffee houses.
In Fall of 2018, The Golden State Lifeguards Foundation was created to help promote drowning prevention in the Southern California region. Although very new, it is a work in progress but our goal is be fully operational by January 2019.
Golden State Lifeguards is a national partner of Pool Safely which is an organization solely devoted to drowning prevention & awareness. As a partner, we are able to provide many people with lifesaving brochures and handouts supplied to us by Pool Safely. The information presented is invaluable and does save the lives of children all over the region.
The first line of defense in drowning prevention is making sure kids know how to swim and how to survive should they fall into a pool alone.
The second line of defense is the Swimbrayv Foundation which is devoted to using mermaid ambassadors to help spread the drowning prevention message. The founder, Candace Thome who through a personal tragedy of her own created the foundation in an effort to prevent needless drownings through education and what better way than using mermaids to get the message out there. From her humble beginnings, she is now expanding internationally with her foundation.
The last line of defense is having lifeguards at pool parties or beach events which is where Golden State Lifeguards comes in. We also engage in community drowning prevention events produced by our in-house planners.
DROWNINGS ARE 100% PREVENTABLE!
