There’s nothing quite like packing up the kayak, or hitching up the motorboat, and spending a sunny afternoon exploring the beautiful waters off the coast of Southern California.

That old 70’s song states that “it never rains in Southern California,” but “it pours, man, it pours.” Well, it looks like we may be witnessing that over the next week, as a series of winter storms are making their way towards the San Diego area. There’s no doubt that we need rain to quench our state’s historic six year drought, but when too much precipitation comes too fast, it can lead to flooding and hazardous driving conditions.
It’s one of those lovely SoCal Saturday afternoons, and like so many San Diegans, you’ve decided to have a lazy day at the beach; a little sun, a little surf, good friends and good times. About an hour goes by, and you’re relaxed, toes in the sand, listening the rhythmic sound of the tide rolling in and out, the laughter of children, a friend tells an amusing story.

There are few better ways to beat the heat of summer than spending the afternoon at the pool. Unfortunately though, swimming pools come with great risk and responsibility and accidents can occur. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), from 2005 to 2014, there were an average of 3,536 fatal and unintentional drownings in the United States, which is about ten deaths per day. Moreover, drowning is the second-leading cause of fatalities among children. And a near-drowning can often leave both adults and children with devastating injuries that can last a lifetime.
