    Water Safety

    One of the many appeals of living in, and visiting, the City of Bellevue is the access to water recreation. Whether you enjoy our vast shorelines or swimming in community and private pools, water plays an elemental role in our summer activities. Underneath the water, however, looms a danger so perverse it claims approximately 3,500 lives per year. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, drowning is the leading cause of unintentional death in children ages 1-4, the majority of which occur in home swimming pools. 

    Watch as one Bellevue mother shares her very personal tragedy to help prevent others from dealing with the devastating loss of drowning.
