Kids Don’t Float – Lender PFD Program

Esquimalt Anglers in  conjunction with Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue are please to announce the installation and start up of  a
new “ Kids Don`t Float ` station at the Esquimalt Fleming Beach Clubhouse.

The purpose of this project is to provide “ LENDER “ PFD  ( personal floatation devices –  life jackets ) for children to use (if they do
not have any with them) when they are on or around the water. Available in three child sizes by weight in kilograms.

The PFDs will be left hanging and available 24 hours a day 7 days a week on the exterior wall
of Esquimalt Anglers Clubhouse at Fleming Beach.

The intent of this project is to have PFDs available for children to wear when they are near the water and
then return them to their hanging posts at the end of the day in preparation for other children to use them next.

 

In partnership with:

Royal Marine Search and Rescue
