... Swim near a lifeguard Campaign...

Drowning is the third leading cause of accidental death in the
United States and the second leading cause of accidental death
for persons aged 5 to 44. For children in the one to two year age
range, drowning is the leading cause of injury or death. In
Florida, drowning is the leading cause of injury or death for
persons under 15 years of age.

The United States lifeguard association statistics over a ten
year period show that the chance of drowning at a beach without
lifeguard protection is almost five times as great as drowning at
a beach with lifeguards. The chance that a person will drown while
attending a beach protected by usla affiliated lifeguards at 1 in
18 million.

Lifeguards work continually to identify hazards that might
affect you. They can advise you on the safest place to swim,
as well as places to avoid. A lifeguards primary goal is to
provide you with valuable safety information to keep you safe
during your visit to the beach. Talk to them when you first arrive
at the beach and ask them for their advice. This is why the
Florida Beach patrols chiefs association and the United States
lifesaving association, south east region are advising all beach
patrons to swim near a lifeguard.
