About Us


  • Drowning is preventable.
  • Influencing policy and legislation is the most effective way to address drowning prevention.
  • Making water safety resources more accessible to low-income groups is an effective way to influence safer behavior around the water.
  • Drowning happens to children of loving, responsible parents. Most of these tragedies are NOT the result of a lack of supervision, but rather occur during momentary lapses when caregivers are engaged in routine household activities.
  • We embrace those who have lost a loved one to fatal or nonfatal drowning (incidents resulting in permanent neurological damage) and we support the unique way that each family chooses to honor the memory of a drowning victim. We foster their programs and projects that will prevent future drowning tragedies.
  • We promote collaboration with every organization working to prevent drowning.
