Event description

Description

The Fort Worth Drowning Prevention Coalition's mission is to prevent fatal and non-fatal drownings in Fort Worth, and beyond.

  • Texas ranks second to Florida for US fatal drownings
  • Tarrant County leads the state in pediatric drownings
  • Drowning is the leading cause of accidental death of children 1 to 5 yrs of age
  • 70% of African American children, 60% of Latino children and 40% of Caucasian children have low or no swimming ability

This program is an open water safety and drowning prevention class for ages 12 to 103 y.o. If you already know how to swim this is not the class for you. Our partners with the City of Fort Worth, YMCA and The Fort Worth Swim School offer excellent and affordable swim lessons.

Where: Burger's Lake, 1200 Meandering Rd 76114

When: July 28- July 30, 2020, 6:45 PM (Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursday)

Time: 6:45 to 7:15 PM

Parents/caregivers should register for the course, as well. We appreciate everyone's understanding that water safety is a family effort requiring multiple layers of protection.

Curriculum Goals (We will rotate every 20 minutes among the three sessions):

  1. In the lake: Flip/Float/Follow Technique, Limits, and Hazards
  2. CPR Instruction
  3. Dry land education: Guest speakers, statistics, and life vest safety.

FAQs

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
