Drowning Prevention
Drowning can be a silent catastrophe, one that can happen in the few minutes you take to answer a phone call or run inside for a towel. Florida leads the country in drowning deaths of children ages 1-4. Drowning is the leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 4 in Collier County.

The Safe & Healthy Children's Coalition of Collier County provides resources and education services to help prevent drowning.
