What is News 4 Tucson Lifesaver?

Nine years ago, we launched our News 4 Tucson Lifesaver campaign after a record number of child drownings in Southern Arizona.

For this year's Swimfest we've again partnered with the YMCA of Southern Arizona, and teamed up with area Fire Departments, Safe Kids of Pima County, Flooring America, 72 Aquatics, Honda, E-Konomy Pool Service & Supplies, Legoland, and CPR2U to educate viewers on how they can prevent children from drowning. Sign up for classes here!

Lesson dates and times are:

  • May 10- Lighthouse YMCA, 2900 N. Columbus Blvd., Tucson (combo w/ parent child)
  • May 17 - Northwest YMCA, 7770 N. Shannon Road, Tucson (combo w/ parent child)
  • May 24 - Mulcahy 2805 E. Ajo Way (combo w/ parent child)
  • May 31 - Flowing Wells 4545 North la Cholla Boulevard, Tucson (regular 3-12 years)

Every drowning is 100% preventable. Remember the A, B, C’s of Swim Safety: A=Active adult supervision, B=Barriers, and C=Classes (swim lessons for children and CPR lessons for adults.)
