Orange County Water Safety Challenge

July 20, 2019
3 Locations to Choose From! Aliso Veijo, Orange, Seal Beach

The Stop Drowning Now Water Safety Challenge is held across the country each year as a way to showcase their community’s water safety skills and to shine a light on the leading cause of death in children 4 years old and under.

Students, parents and other family members alike may participate by demonstrating skills such as jumping into the pool, recovering balance, and returning to the side, floating on the back for 30 seconds, swimming distances up to a mile, learning how to wear a Coast Guard approved life jacket, and demonstrating a reaching rescue from the deck. In addition, participants can join community partner groups to learn CPR and other safety tips to keep your family safe.
