BECOME A WATER WATCHDOG
Children can drown in seconds. Yes, even in pools where lifeguards are present. That’s why we’ve designed the Water Watchdog Program. The idea is simple. One adult wears the Watchdog Tag around bodies of water and follows the rules below. When the designated Water Watchdog needs to take a break, he or she hands off the tag, 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 only.
- To remain by the water until relieved by a new Water Watchdog.
Please fill out the required information to become a Water Watchdog. Also, keep an eye on your mailbox as a free Water Watchdog Tag will be mailed to you at the address you provide.
