WAVE Drowning Technology Prevention


When WAVE Drowning Detection Systems offered the YMCA an opportunity to pilot their system with campers at YMCA Camp Moody, we said yes! Drowning is the #1 cause of accidental death for children under age 5 and the second cause through ages 14, and keeping children safe in the water is our top priority.

KVUE stopped by camp last week to learn more about this enhanced safety system. See how this innovative technology is helping keep kids safe this summer!
