Record-Breaking “Drowning Impact Awareness Month” Participation

Statewide Campaign Grows in High-Risk Month of August – Tucson Drowning Highlights Dangers

PHOENIX, Ariz. (August 10, 2009) – Scorching temperatures and back-to-school distractions are standard in the month of August, adding up to an increased risk for child drownings. The Sixth Annual “Drowning Impact Awareness Month” highlights the danger and recognizes those affected by fatal and non-fatal child drownings.

This year the purple ribbon campaign, which is coordinated by Water Watchers at Phoenix Children’s Hospital, has grown significantly. More than 98,000 purple ribbons have been distributed across the state, along with educational information, through participating organizations. Proclamations were passed by Governor Jan Brewer and Mayors throughout Arizona, including many in Pima County.

Statewide collaboration with fire departments, businesses, and volunteers has created record-breaking momentum this year. Supporters include the Drowning Prevention Coalition of Arizona, Valley Toyota Dealers, SRP Safety Connection, La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries, NARPRO (Neighborhood Auto Repair Professional Network) facilities, and businesses, swim schools, churches throughout Arizona.

Success of the effort is essential – twelve children have drowned to date in Maricopa County, and the death of a three year old boy in Tucson this weekend brings Pima County’s child drowning total to six. Child drownings on average have fallen in recent years, with increased awareness and the use of research-based strategies like layers of protection.

The campaign focuses upon prevention, reminding caregivers that “Awareness is Free.” Supporters are encouraged to wear purple ribbons and actively practice the ABC’s of Water Safety – Adult supervision, Barriers between children and the water, and Classes in CPR for adults, and swimming lessons for children at the appropriate age.

Upcoming Drowning Impact Awareness Month events include a water safety event at the Pointe Squaw Peak in Phoenix on August 14th, and another at the Famous Dave’s Bar-B-Que restaurant in Mesa on August 22nd. For more information about Drowning Impact Awareness Month events, ways to get involved, displays created to honor children touched by drowning, and water safety tips, visit

August is Drowning Impact Awareness Month and Media Push clients showing support August 3, 2009

Valley Businesses Help to Promote August Drowning Awareness Month
The Phoenix Children’s Hospital has named August Drowning Awareness Month in Arizona, and many clients of The Media Push are stepping up to help support the cause.

Arizona has seen plenty of headlines about child drownings, and about the economic downturn, as well. This year, however, the two issues may combine to create an unforeseen and deadly effect: an increased risk of child drownings. As families struggle to pay for pool fences, swimming lessons, child care, and CPR instruction, “stay-cations” mean more time spent by the family pool, and increasingly stressed and distracted caregivers. Ten children have drowned to date in Maricopa County, as compared to nine, as of July 31st, 2008.

This is the sixth year that the Phoenix Children’s Hospital has designated August as Drowning Impact Awareness Month (DIAM). Water Watchers at Phoenix Children’s Hospital exists to increase community education and awareness of the issue of child drowning, and to help the community learn more about drowning through research. Phoenix Children’s Hospital will be distributing over 75,000 purple ribbons to remind people to protect kids around water. You will see the purple ribbons at Hospitals, local Fire Departments, businesses, schools, churches and worn by media.

The following businesses of The Media Push will also be a pick-up location for purple ribbons throughout the month of August.

FAMOUS DAVE’S Restaurants in Peoria, Chandler and Mesa : Servers and managers will wear the ribbons and offer up information to interested diners on how to make a difference or show their support of this campaign. Famous Dave’s will also be holding a coloring contest for the kids that come in and eat at Famous Dave’s. Winner’s get a free Lil Wilbur Meal!
NARPRO (Neighborhood Auto Repair Professional Network): Ribbons are available at these quality auto repair shops across the Valley. Go to for a location near your home or work.
DERMA HEALTH INSTITUTE in Ahwatukee, Chandler, Mesa and Paradise Valley: for exact locations.
Also, DONLEY SERVICE CENTER, a Valley-based AC/Plumbing/Solar and Heating Company will have magnetic purple ribbons on their service vehicles.
