Kids Don't Float...
Just for Kids

The Kids Don’t Float program has two components. The first component is a PFD (personal flotation device) Loaner Board Program that allows the public to borrow PFDs free of cost, from loaner sites which are located at harbors, lakes, rivers and any open body of water for recreational use. The second component is the Peer Education Program designed for educators, parents or anyone involved with children to teach them about cold-water exposure, PFD use and drowning prevention.

What is a PFD?

A PFD is a Personal Flotation Device. Our PFD Loaner Program provides Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs) for kids to use at harbors and boat ramps.
