FSPA Northeast Florida Chapter continues to be actively involved with the Safe Kids organization. We will be meeting in the coming months regarding a city-wide campaign to combat drownings as well as assisting in planning Safe Kids Day. The City of Jacksonville has committed to spending $1,000,000 to retro-fit numerous city pools with heaters to offer year-round swimming lessons.  The FSPA Northeast Florida Chapter has been in touch with the Director of Parks and Recreations on how we can work together to continue to be a leader in providing free, or low cost, lessons to children. The Chapter is also working with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s office, Sheriff’s Watch Apartments division, to see how we can provide lifesaving equipment at apartment pools in low-income neighborhoods.

The Safe Kids Coalition is forming a Drowning Prevention Task Force.  The first meeting was held Februaty 14 at the Safe Kids office at The Player Center.  It is our plan to convene a community task force to increase prevention education in the upcoming year in Jacksonville and surrounding counties.  Our goal is to decrease drowning incidents in northeast Florida through a wider range of prevention education shared by our task force members.
