As we approach the warmer months Federal Member for Lindsay, David Bradbury, has joined with Laurie Lawrence in promoting the important Kids Alive Do the Five water safety message.
Mr Bradbury has organised with Laurie Lawrence for local families to be provided with a free Living with Water DVD.
“I encourage all parents of young children to contact my office to receive a copy of this free water safety DVD.” Mr Bradbury said.
“Summer isn’t too far away, so now is the perfect time to teach our children the important Kids Alive do the Five water safety message to reduce the risk of preschool downing.”
Drowning is the biggest cause of accidental death in children under five in Australia. On average one child in Australia drowns each week.
Laurie Lawrence said showing your children the water safety DVD is just one small way everyone can do their bit to reduce drowning in Australia.
“Owning a swimming pool is a big responsibility. Pool owners must ensure that their pool is fenced and complies with local government legislation” said Mr Lawrence.
“Every local parent should grab a copy of the DVD from David Bradbury’s office and make sure their children are doing the five.”
