The Canadian Red Cross’ mission is to improve the lives of vulnerable people by mobilizing the power of humanity in Canada and around the world. The goal of the Swimming & Water Safety Program is to improve the quality of life by giving people the skills to make safe choices, increase physical fitness, prevent injuries and act in emergency and rescue situations.
About the Red Cross and the Swimming & Water Safety Program
The Canadian Red Cross sells the Fox 40 whistle to their Swimming & Water Safety Instructors to encourage these individuals to promote safety around the water. This also ensures they are provided with the best and most reliable whistle available which allows them to alert others of an issue or emergency.
The Canadian Red Cross Society is part of the largest humanitarian network in the world, which includes 187 National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies dedicated to improving the situation of the most vulnerable people throughout the world. Their range of programs and services includes disaster relief, both domestically and internationally, community health services, first aid, swimming and water safety, and violence and abuse prevention education. Through the Swimming & Water Safety Program, the Canadian Red Cross brings swimming skills and water safety education to over 1.1 million Canadians each year.
