Proclamation of the City of Brentwood
Declaring May as National Drown-Prevention Month

WHEREAS, drowning kills more toddlers in California than any other accidental cause; and

WHEREAS, most children drown in their own pools, but some children also drown in buckets, toilets, bathtubs and creeks; and

WHEREAS, near-drowning calls are tragic, many times causing permanent brain damage; and

WHEREAS, anyone involved with young children needs to be aware of how to prevent drownings; and

WHEREAS, the City of Brentwood, through a variety of aquatic education programs has taken a pro-active stance to reduce drownings; and

WHEREAS, drownings and near-drownings are preventable;

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that we, the City of Brentwood, proclaim May as National Drown-Prevention Month and encourage all citizens to participate in raising their awareness of Drown-Prevention techniques to avoid these kinds of tragedies in our community.
