Kids Alive, Do The 5!

Drowning is the greatest cause of accidental death in children under five in Australia. Each week, on average, one child drowns. Lets put an end to childhood drowning for good.

In 1988 to combat drowning, Laurie Lawrence created the Kids Alive – Do the Five water safety program. The Kids Alive community service program educates the public on five important steps to reduce the risk of preschool drowning.
