We believe by working together, we can accomplish much more than we can on our own. Use your voice to help raise awareness about water safety education in our community. Let us use our expertise to make our community safer, while you come alongside us by sponsoring a program. When you support the FWDPC, your gift is going directly to serving our community through in-water skills training, dry land education, virtual classes, water safety tools and equipment that help families stay safe in and around water.
The FWDPC leverages expertise and resources to provide water safety education at various locations across Fort Worth. When the venue of the event is a pool, both in-water skills training and water safety education will be provided. When the venue is dry-land only, water safety education will be the emphasis, with encouragement to participate in a future event that includes in-water skills training. Our model strives to make a generational impact, focusing not only on educating children, but also providing parents and caregivers with tools to help keep their families safe in and around water.
My oldest child received a life jacket and loves it. We are trying to keep him from becoming dependent on it however, he is still gaining confidence and skills in the water. The life jacket is of excellent quality and is holding up well. I have 3 yr old twins and I'd like to sign them up for the swim safety classes as well. It is very hard watching 3 small kids at the pool even with another helper, the jacket helps. Your class is well appreciated and informative not only for the children, but safety lessons for parents. Thank you.

This program is AMAZING! Every city needs year-round swim lessons. Swimming lessons are so expensive. Most families have more than enough debt and simply cannot afford lessons for their kids, which is a travesty! Water safety is so important, especially when young kids are involved. This program is affordable and a huge asset to our city, our families and our future leaders. Thank you!
This program has taught my son how to be a better swimmer. It has helped him gain confidence in learning how to swim and meet friends. We keep coming back because the people are amazing swimming teachers!
This program is AMAZING! You taught us parents about drowning prevention and my daughter enjoyed learning how to swim. Wonderful program,thank you!
I really enjoyed the program. I learned alot from it, for instance getting to know the body of water so we can get more familiar and beable to be more cautious. I appreciateall the guest speakers as well for taking the time to come talk to us
This helped me realize how real things come to life when you hear someone tell their story. The story about Xander really stuck with me and definitely was a wake up call to be much more cautious.
This class has been a blessing and an answered prayer. I have three children and so swimming lessons are very costly and can be more than $300. I greatly appreciate your concern and care for children and adults by teaching them water safety and swimming basics. I thank God for your program and that you are saving lives!
I found out about this program through my neighbor who found out about it through the water department. This program has not only helped my 6 yearold start to learn how to swim but it has been extremely educational for me. I am so happy we got to take part in this fantastic life changing program. It is programs like these that help save lives. Thank you so much
After a scare earlier this past Spring our son was no longer comfortable being in the water. You have helped him regain his confidence through your patience and the skills you have taught him. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! The free vests are also an extra piece of security that are much appreciated!
Had great information about water safety and drowning prevention. Highly recommend attending. At every session, parents listen to a speaker with info while kids are in swim class.

Thank you so much for this course. I love the parent part of it as well. This is great information for the entire family. The speakers have been very educational and compassionate. Thank you for all you do!
I’ve been very impressed with the program. My daughter really likes her instructor and for the first time enjoys herself in the pool. I was pleasantly surprised with the adjacent parent educational classes (CPR, float devices), they were succinct and informative. I’ve been telling other parents about FWDPC!
