Far too often, we see news of yet another child drowning in a backyard pool. This breaks the hearts of everyone at Emler. Even more tragic is that these accidents are preventable. Through formal swim lessons, focused supervision, pool barriers, and CPR skills, parents can drastically reduce pool drowning on a community scale.
Despite these facts, drowning remains the #1 cause of death for young children. And Texas leads the nation in the number of preschool children who drown in pools.
Emler is working to help all children learn to be safer in and around the water through the skills we teach, and by partnering with local hospitals and other non-profit organizations that are helping spread the word about water safety.
