ABCD's of Drowning Prevention
As the temperatures continue to rise, the Queen Creek Fire and Medical Department (QCFMD) reminds residents to be safe around water and help prevent drownings. Know and follow the ABCD's of Drowning Prevention to keep your family members safe.
A - Adult Supervision
B - Barriers between children and water
C - Classes including CPR for adults and swim lessons for children
D - Devices such as lifejackets and lifesaving devices.
QCFMD has the following tips:
- Look in the pool first: every second counts when an individual is drowning and precious time is often wasted looking elsewhere. Always look for missing individuals, especially children in the pool or spa first.
- Drowning is silent: many people believe they will hear someone drowning because the individual will be screaming or splashing. However, drowning is silent with the individual unable to make noise.
If you find someone in any source of water:
- Yell for help and pull the person out of the water.
- Call 9-1-1 immediately!
- Begin CPR if you are trained.
- If you are not trained to administer CPR, follow the instructions from the 9-1-1 operator until help arrives.
