Drowning is the leading cause of accidental death among children under the age of five.
This can change with education and awareness. Drowning is preventable.
Aquatic Safety Awareness Program (A.S.A.P.) is determined to reduce the number of drowning occurrences in this vulnerable age group.
Statistics conclusively prove that water safety education of preschoolers and their families directly and positively reduces the number of drowning incidents worldwide. A.S.A.P. provides resources for schools and pediatricians to work together with families to raise water smart babies and children.
