Water Safety & PFD Usage
Our goal is to promote PFD usage for both children and adults, regardless of their swimming ability. We want to reduce the negative stigma of wearing a PFD. Many incorrectly perceive that someone "can't swim" if they have on a PFD.
We encourage the utilization of PFD's around all bodies of water including oceans, rivers, lakes, or pools, regardless if you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced swimmer. Unfortunately there are tragic drownings that could have potentially been prevented if a PFD was utilized. Wearing a PFD greatly enhances the chance of survival in an unforeseen situation that could occur in the water.
