Children can drown in seconds even in pools where lifeguards are present. That is why Abbey’s Hope designed the Water Watchdog Program. The idea is simple. One adult wears the Watchdog Tag around bodies of water and follows the Watchdog simple rules.
As a Water Watchdog, you pledge to:
- 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.
To become a water watchdog, please EMAIL Abbey’s Hope with your information:
- Your Full Name
- Your Mailing Address
- Your Phone Number
Then, keep an eye on your mailbox as a Water Watchdog Tag will be mailed to you at the address you provide. A donation is not required but would be appreciated.
