Pool Owner Awareness Project – Partnership with Pool and Spa service providers to bring pool owners educational and safety information to prevent drownings.
Caregiver Curriculum – Water safety education geared at caregivers of children. Goal is to create an interactive web-based program that will teach caregivers how quickly and silently children drown. Curriculum will include information on how to keep the children they care for safe by identifying the risks of drowning. Program will seek to have an emotional impact by including videos and testimony of lost children and their parents.
Social Media Project – Our volunteer committee works to engage daily with the community on drowning prevention. Our posts provide resources and education to help keep drowning prevention in the forefront of people’s minds year round. Our posts reach thousands of people and the numbers are growing.
