If more than 33,273 signatures are collected on the 80’x120’ flag, the official record will be broken (5’x6’ pieces of the border were shipped around the world for signing)!

"Not One More Child Drowns"
Founded in 1966 by Dr. Harvey Barnett, ISR is now the global leader in the industry it pioneered: survival swimming lessons for infants and young children. The ISR Self-Rescue instruction students receive is the product of over 45 years of research 
Children 6-12 Months Old:
Generally speaking, children ages 6 months to 1 year learn the ISR Self-Rescue skill of rolling onto their backs to float, rest and breathe. They learn to maintain this position until help arrives.
Children 1-6 Years 
Will learn the full ISR Self-Rescue sequence of swimming until they need air, rotating onto the back to float, then rolling back over to continue swimming. ISR students are taught to repeat this sequence until they reach the safety of the steps, side of the pool, or the shoreline.
