Josh the Otter Water Safety & Awareness Project

Our goal is to educate children with a fun and simple message:

TO STAY AWAY FROM WATER UNLESS ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT.

“Josh the Baby Otter” was created to help children comprehend and remember this important message. Ultimately, we want to create a water safety behavior for all children that will be passed on from generation to generation.

We have already distributed several thousand copies of the book to daycares, preschools, and kindergarten classrooms across the country. With ongoing support, we will continue our efforts to incorporate this life saving message into every educational curriculum in the United States and beyond. We believe the book; “Josh the Baby Otter” has and will continue to save countless children’s lives.

“It’s an awesome program and more schools are calling us all the time to do it,” Hersh said. “If every year we hit the kindergarten class where we have kids who are at that point where they’re adventurous, we’ll be ahead of the game.”

The 2016 JCMF Golf Tournament raised over $60,000.00 to support our water safety educational programs!

We THANK all of our amazing supporters across the U.S. and worldwide! Because of YOU over 1 million children have heard the life-saving message of water safety with Josh the Otter!

Safety in water is year round. Please close toilet lids, and coolers. We want everyone to have a safe Holiday season.

National Drowning Prevention Alliance
Supervision and water safety need to be practiced year round to prevent drowning. It is vital to understand that children still drown in winter, and that most drownings occur when children find their way to water unnoticed.

What water safety tips do you practice at home to keep your family safe during the Holidays?
