Individually, we cannot save the world. However, as individuals we can do, at least, one thing to support drowning prevention. It takes only one act to save a life.

Learn CPR/First-Aid or Provide Free Courses

Enroll and take a friend to a CPR/First Aid class. Pay for someone else to attend a CPR/First Aid class.

Learn to Swim

Volunteer for local hospitals , drowning prevention organizations, or where you are needed. Contact school administration to add this life skill to curriculum. Involve local legislators.
