Infant Swimming Resource & Safe Start USA Have Taught More Than 50,000 Children Self-Rescue™ Swimming Lessons in Orlando

Survival Swimming Program Taught for 25 Years in Orlando Makes a Huge Splash into Spring

Orlando, FL (Vocus) April 22, 2010 -- Infant Swimming Resource ( and Safe Start USA (, the safest providers of Self-RescueTM swimming lessons for babies and toddlers from six months to six years old, announces that it has taught more than 50,000 babies and children survival swimming skills over the last 25 years. In addition to their drowning prevention impact, Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) and Safe Start now have 50 certified Instructors in the Orlando area.

“As a private practice pediatrician, I have researched all available drowning prevention programs in an effort to make informed recommendations to not only protect my patients, but my own children as well,” said Dr. David Carr of Pediatrics Plus in Orlando. “All six of my children have completed the ISR program. I recommend ISR to every parent beginning at their child’s six-month wellness checkup and continuing at every well child visit thereafter. While nothing can replace parental supervision for accident prevention, survival swimming is an extra layer of protection against childhood drowning.”

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, drowning ranks as the leading cause of accidental death for children under the age of four in Florida.

With a focus on drowning prevention and water safety for families, ISR’s Self-Rescue training teaches children how to survive if they were to end up in the water alone.

“As part of ISR’s 2010 Not One More Child Drowns campaign we want parents to implement a Drowning Prevention Plan in their home that includes Constant-Eyes-On (CEO) Supervision, Pool Fences, Alarms, Self-Locking Gates, Self-Rescue skills and CPR,” says Harvey Barnett, Ph.D., founder of ISR.
