Kids Don't Float Program      

The program features large boards with colourful graphics along with a supply of children's PFDs (personal floatation devices).  These boards are erected at marinas, boat launching ramps, parks and swimming areas.  The program is run on an honour system and offers free day use of the PFDs.

The Kids Don�t Float Program was initially developed in 1996 by a group in Homer, Alaska as a response to Alaska�s high rate of drowning. The program was piloted in Homer and then adapted for statewide use. The program is currently sponsored as a coalition of the U.S. Coast Guard, State of Alaska, Alaska Safe Kids, and other community volunteers. The new Alaska Boating Safety Program provides primary funding for the program.
