Riverland residents are being reminded of the need to take responsibility for their own safety in and around water as we approach the summer season. 

Figures released by Royal Life Saving Australia in the most recent National Drowning Report show that 276 people drowned in Australia during the 2018/19 financial year, of which 14 were in South Australia, one less than the previous year and a reduction of 13% on the ten year average. 

While the national body welcomes the reduction in drowning deaths and say it’s encouraging they also say all drownings are considered preventable, with one being too many.
