Clark County is a partner in the Southern Nevada Child Drowning Prevention Coalition’s annual drowning prevention campaign. Information is available on the Southern Nevada Health District’s website at: www.GetHealthyClarkCounty.org. The following three steps are recommended to prevent drownings: Patrol by designating adults as water watchers; protect by installing barriers like fencing between your home and pools and spas; and prepare by enrolling children in swimming lessons and creating a water safety plan for your family if an emergency happens.
