International drowning prevention expert and WaterSafe Auckland board member Dr Kevin Moran will lead a forum next Tuesday to discuss New Zealand’s drowning problem, and urges members of the media to attend.
What: Media forum on drowning – the problem, the terminology, the reporting.
When: 4.00pm – 5.00pm, Tuesday 6 December 2016
Where: WaterSafe Auckland, 85 Westhaven Drive, Westhaven, Auckland. Parking available (white spaces please).
Why: WaterSafe Auckland is concerned at further loss of life over the summer, typically peaking over the holiday period when Kiwi activities invariably involved water of some kind. Achieving fewer drownings in Auckland and across New Zealand is a collective responsibility, one in which the media plays a key role.
