Water Safety Talk

  • November 5, 2022

Events Description

We invited Maddison from Drowning Prevention Auckland to deliver the community Water Safety Talk on Sat in 05 Nov 2022 in Aotea Sport and Recreation Centre.  According to report from Stuff on March 2022:

“Asian and Pacific migrants are “at risk” of death by drowning in Auckland due to a lack of local knowledge, experts say.

Out of the 387 preventable drowning deaths in New Zealand in the past five years, most were Asian and Pasifika migrants, said Harry Aonga from Drowning Prevention Auckland.

In Auckland alone, there have been 85 preventable drownings since 2017. Of the people who died, 42 per cent were of Asian or Pacific descent – 18 each for each ethnic group.”

Summer season is coming soon, and people start to do water activities. It is very important to remind all community water safety and deliver relevant knowledge.
