“Sadly, drowning remains the leading cause of unintentional death for children ages 1–4 and the second leading cause of unintentional death for children ages 1–14, but great tools like the Pool Safely Pledge are helpful ways to ensure kids and families are safer around water.  While summer may be drawing to an end, swimming doesn’t – which is why the Pool Safely campaign and The ZAC Foundation are encouraging people to follow important simple steps, like taking the Pledge, which ultimately can save lives.” – Karen Cohn, Co-Founder, The ZAC Foundation
