Event Details

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:  June 18-June 20, 2019, 6:45 PM (Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursday)

Time:  6:45 to 8:15 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?

We invite any non-swimmer ages 12 to 103 y.o. to participate

Is this session different from your other sessions?

Yes, the lake provides instruction for lakes or other open water and all students will also move through CPR and Dry Land Education. The other sessions have simultaneous Dry Land/Pool instruction for the entire class. 

Whose name should I use to register?

Please provide the name of the non-swimming student who will be in the water with us.  

What can/can't I bring to the event?

Bring a swimsuit, towel and sunscreen for each participant.  Swim caps and goggles can also be helpful.
