ZAC Foundation and Ben Carlson Foundation Create Water Safety Coalition

Newport Beach Independent

The ZAC Foundation, a national nonprofit based in Greenwich, Conn. that’s dedicated to improving water safety by funding education and effective programming, is partnering with the Ben Carlson Memorial & Scholarship Foundation in Newport Beach – a nonprofit promoting beach and ocean safety and assisting in higher education for lifeguards – to create the California Water Safety Coalition.

This coalition will fill a leadership gap in the state’s water safety sector and lead statewide strategy in the development, implementation, and evaluation of water safety policy and educational programs.

California drowning prevention and water safety stakeholders outlined the Coalition’s vision and mission this week during a collaborative online workshop hosted by both foundations.
