Drowning Prevention

Missouri has averaged over 46 non-boating related drownings per year on streams, rivers, ponds and lakes over the past five years. Those numbers do not include drownings that occurred in swimming pools. Using caution while in and around waterways, or swimming pools, should always be a priority. Drownings occur quickly and often quietly. Please visit the links below for additional drowning prevention information:
