According to the World Health Organization:
Drowning is the third leading cause of unintentional deaths
There were over 370,000 drowning deaths in 2012 alone
Drownings account for 7% of all injury deaths
At the Rescue Tube Foundation, we responded to this problem by developing a system to help reduce these unnecessary deaths. In 2008, we began placing Rescue Tubes on the beaches of Hawaii. Soon, our efforts expanded to the U.S. mainland. Our Rescue Tubes are designed to be available for anyone to use and protect themselves while they attempt to help a swimmer in distress.
The Rescue Tube Foundation is dedicated to lowering the number of drowning deaths around the world by providing Rescue Tubes to protect rescuers at water recreational locations.
