  • Targeted messages in each
    level based on Lifesaving
    Society Drowning Reports
  • Targeted messages on each
    Progress Report

Lifejacket vs. PFD
  • Research has shown that the general public is not
    familiar with the term PFD and therefore should
    be replaced with the generic term Lifejacket
  • Anything that will be seen by the general public
    will use the term Lifejacket
  • Instructor resources will continue to use PFD,
    as Swim Instructors, you know the difference
