Over the holiday weekend, the Orange County Fire Authority responded to five near-drownings. Drowning consistently remains the leading cause of death for children one to four years old both in Orange County and throughout the state.
In the July issue of the Orange County REALTOR® magazine, OCAR writer and editor, Sherri Butterfield, wrote an excellent piece entitled, "The ABCs of Water Safety" (pages 48-49). It's followed by a one-page Swimming Pool Safety handout. These are great pieces to share with your clients or farm.
