Swim Safe Forever is one of the founding Team members of the Parents Preventing Childhood Drowning (PPCD) project. This project is a national multi organizational project that was launched in August 2018. The mission is simple: to unify and effectively 

communicate the importance of layers of protection to prevent childhood drowning.
