    Drowning Prevention

    Drowning is the second leading cause of injury death among children. Drowning is often swift, silent and occurs in as little as 30 seconds. In addition to adult supervision, life jackets are an important measure all Spokane County residents can take to prevent drowning – on lakes, rivers and in swimming pools.

    The Inland Northwest Drowning Prevention Coalition 


    As recent news reports make clear, swimming and floating in open waters, especially on the Spokane River at higher stream flows, can be hazardous, especially for inexperienced swimmers who don’t use life jackets.

    The Inland Northwest Drowning Prevention Coalition, which includes several local rescue organizations and other vested agencies, are joining efforts with a common safety message—preventing future drownings is as simple as residents putting on their life jackets. It is a precaution that is as easy as buckling a seat belt while in a vehicle.

    Central to this campaign is a new 45 second PSA emphasizing drowning prevention messages locally.

    Members of the coalition include:
