NDPA’s fourth Layer of Protection: Life Jackets ❗

U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) tested and approved life jackets should be worn by everyone especially when in or around open or natural bodies of water, and when boating.

Life jackets should be sized appropriately for the wearer.

When other layers of protection may break down, life jackets can help prevent unintentional drowning. Remember: lifejackets are not a substitute for supervision - it's an added layer but that is still required!

Learn more about life jackets as a layer of protection here:


Swimming lessons are an essential layer of protection against drowning.

In fact, recent studies suggest that formal swimming lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by 88%, with children aged 1 - 4 benefitting the most.

NDPA’s third Layer of Protection: Water Competency ❗

Every person should be equipped with the skills to protect themselves in water by learning and enhancing their basic water safety skills to reduce the risk of drowning.

Swimming is not an innate ability for humans, so it is crucial for every person to learn water competency and swimming skills as soon as they are able.

Water competency and swim lessons should be a continuous effort and maintained during the entire year.

NDPA’s second Layer of Protection: Supervision ❗

Everyone has a responsibility to stay vigilant and aware in all environments involving water.

Remember the “3 C’s” of Supervision:

💧Close: Within an arm’s reach
💧Constant: Uninterrupted attention
💧Capable: Can swim & knows CPR with rescue breaths

Always have a Water Watcher on duty and when possible, swim near a lifeguard! 🛟


Survival Week is coming!

As we teach students water survival techniques, one important lesson is learning to navigate the water while fully clothed. After all, anyone who accidentally falls into the water is unlikely to be dressed for it!

Join us from May 15th - May 21st for this one-of-a-kind, vacation-themed safety training!

The 5 Layers of Protection consist of:

2️⃣ Supervision
3️⃣ Water Competency
4️⃣ Life Jackets
5️⃣ Emergency Preparation
