Water Watcher

Unfortunately, most people don’t see the hazards of these bodies of water can pose, especially to those who do not know how to swim. When these hazards are ignored or not recognized, users (particularly children) are at great risk of having tragic accidents.

Three Layers of drowning prevention

  • Supervision

  • Barriers and Alarms

  • Swim Lessons

Age doesn’t matter/Never too old, never too young.

Learning a new skill as an adult can be hard, especially if you add fear into the mix. If a parent does not know how to swim, there is only a 13% chance that a child in that household will learn how to swim.

Many adults who cannot swim instill fear and avoidance of water in their children as their form of drowning prevention.  In South Florida, this is simply not an option. With miles of beaches, canals and other waterways in addition to over 250,000 backyard, apartment and community pools water is unavoidable.  It is critical that adults learn to swim and teach their children to swim.
