Lifeguard your child.

Water safety is important at any age. When it comes to drowning, seconds count. It’s silent and can happen in an instant. Drowning is the leading cause of accidental death for children ages 1 to 4, and the second leading cause for kids 1-14 in Texas. But with your help, we can change that.

We encourage you to create a safety plan for ANY time your children are around water, whether its swim time, unplanned time around the water or even bath time.
