Let’s Make Water Safer Together

I founded Love to Swim School because I want to make a profound difference in the world. Every day, my team and I have the opportunity to make a huge impact in the lives of kiddos and their families by helping them to be safer in the water.

Note that I say, “safer” – not “safe”. When it comes to the risk of danger in or around water, no one is ever completely “safe” – or free of harm or danger. No one is drown-proof. However, through water safety education, we can reduce the risk of drowning incidents.

This year, I have the privilege to serve on the board of directors for the Safer 3 Water Safety Foundation, an organization dedicated to saving lives through drowning prevention and water safety education.

Safer 3 is a comprehensive initiative to dramatically reduce drowning incidents by:

  1. Recognizing risks associated with water related activities
  2. Implementing strategies to reduce and manage those risks
  3. Responsibly maintaining those strategies

“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.

The mission of the Safer 3 Water Safety Foundation is near and dear to my heart, and I’m excited to be involved this year.

Become a Messenger

Safer 3 Water Safety Foundation was built on grass roots advocacy. While we have grown over the years, some of our biggest supporters remain those who advocate the Safer 3 drowning prevention message in their communities. Read and sign the Safer 3 Messenger Pledge and become a water safety advocate for your community.
