Watch the water like lives are at stake (They are.)
Children can drown in seconds. Yes, even in pools where lifeguards are present. That’s why we’ve designed the Water Watchdog Program, with Water Watchdog Tags. The idea is simple. One adult wears the Watchdog Tags, and follows the rules below. When the designated Water Watchdog needs to take a break, he or she hands off the tags, and the responsibility, to another adult.
Take the pledge
As a Water Watchdog, you agree:
- To maintain constant visual contact with the children in your group.
- Not to drink alcohol, talk on the phone, socialize or read while watching children.
- To keep a phone near the water for emergency purposes.
- Remain by the water until relieved by a new Water Watchdog
Please fill out the required information below to make sure you become a Water Watchdog. Also, keep an eye on your mailbox as a free a Water Watchdog Tag will be mailed to you at the address you provide.
We hope that you will also consider a donation to help spread our message of Safer Pools. Safer Kids.
