Drowning affects all communities and regions at all locations in Western Australia. However, children aged 5-14 years in regional and remote areas of Western Australia are at a significantly higher risk of fatal drowning with the rate in these areas being five times higher than the rate recorded in the Perth metropolitan area.

Overall, 61.1% of all drowning deaths involving children aged 5-14 years occur in regional Western Australia. Royal Life Saving WA is committed to community development in regional and remote locations across WA, providing training, participation and leadership development opportunities in an effort to prevent drowning from occurring in these locations.|

The below programs are available and offered in Regional and Remote communities of Western Australia:
