The District actively promotes flood safety amongst young residents of Pima County. Our spokesperson to kids is Hank Highwater, who can be found telling kids about flood safety in the Bear Essentials newspaper and on SunTran buses. Hank has his own special place on our website at The High Ground Ranch.
Sadly, news of someone dying or requiring rescue from flood waters is nearly a yearly occurrence In Pima County. By properly educating yourself about flood hazards and flood safety, you can keep yourself, and your loved ones, from being an unfortunate news story.
