For Parents

Make water safety fun at home!

Colin’s Hope believes that water safety is a large part of child safety and should be introduced at the earliest of ages and with the same level of urgency as other child safety issues. Our goal is for water safety to become entirely second-nature, just like staying away from hot stoves, looking both ways before crossing the street and wearing seat belts in cars. Water Safety with Colin & Friends does that by helping families talk about water safety and helps create a safer culture around water by using The Whole Hand Rules!

With these SIMPLE behaviors, YOU can help to prevent drowning. Drowning IS preventable!

Be Safer in Just 4 Easy Steps!

Sit down together and watch videos, play games, and make Family Water Safety Rules. Together as a family you can prevent drowning!
