We’ve been a partner for good to the Fort Worth Drowning Prevention Coalition since its inception, helping with start-up consulting, strategic planning, and sponsorship development. The FWDPC is a nonprofit whose mission is to prevent fatal and non-fatal drownings in the Fort Worth area and beyond.
