Safer Water means identifying where the risks are with any body of water (bathtubs, pools, spas, lakes, rivers or oceans) and learning how to reduce those risks. For example installing barriers such as isolation fencing around a backyard pool would reduce the risk of unauthorized access to the pool by young children.
Safer Kids covers the behaviors necessary for both kids and parents to promote water safety. These water safety tips include constant responsible supervision by adults, along with swimming skills attained through ongoing qualified instruction for kids
Safer Response overviews emergency response techniques and emergency action plans as a path to water safety. Learning CPR and first aid, as well as having a phone by the pool at all times are just a few of the water safety tips covered here.
Catch the Wave staff will come to your child’s school and give a fun and interactive presentation about safer behavior in, on, and around the water and provide key water safety information for their parents. The program is especially critical to preschool through early grade school aged children (ages 4-7) because the statistics show that those children are at the most risk of unintentional drowning and near drowning incidents.

We believe that an ongoing, year-round, educational campaign is necessary in order to significantly reduce the number of drowning incidents, not only in the United States, but around the world.
