Child safety is a community concern. Together we can prevent a tragedy. As temperatures warm up we would like to remind you that canals are not for play – stay away!

Drowning is the second leading cause of death in children between the ages of 5 and 14. Supervision can save a life! Kids should always be supervised and within reach of an adult to help prevent them from falling into a canal. Parents and caregivers, please help children understand the dangers of irrigation canals. When near a canal, please take every safety precaution.
