Millions of people visit the 10,000 miles of Great Lakes shoreline each year for a beautiful day. Parks, beaches, marinas, cottages, homes, hotels, and more offer experiences like nowhere else in the world.
But far too many people drown in the Great Lakes each year – and each of these tragedies is preventable with a little warning and a little knowledge. Many were good swimmers. Many didn't even intend to get in the water.
The Great Lakes Water Safety Consortium is a Community of BEST Practice – an umbrella organization with more than 500 members – that knows why drownings occur and how everyone can SAFELY enjoy the Great Lakes. Through fundamentals and innovation, we are making a difference in drowning prevention – together.
