The National Water Safety Congress (NWSC) was founded in 1951 to help curb the rate of drownings resulting from water recreation through national coordination of the educational and safety programs of affiliated organizations. NWSC develops and distributes water safety courses and materials, compiles water accident statistics, promotes water safety programs, conducts conferences and safety training, and promotes water safety through the mass media. The membership of the Congress includes water safety specialists from federal, state, and local governments, water/flood control authorities, water oriented utility companies, public safety agencies, water safety councils, and private individuals.


NWSC publishes water safety materials, films, accident statistics, safety program descriptions, a newsletter, and a chartering kit for prospective affiliates. Serial publication: Water Safety Journal (newsletter), quarterly--reports on awards, accidents, conferences, and water safety programs.
