The Great Lakes Surf Rescue Project, Inc. (GLSRP) is about saving lives.  It is a nonprofit 501 C3 corporation that is a Chapter of the National Drowning Prevention Alliance (NDPA).


  1. Tracks the Great Lakes drowning statistics
  2. Teaches “Great Lakes Water Safety” classes (List of classes to date)
  3. Hosts Surf Lifeguard Certification courses, and
  4. Works with family and friends  of Great Lakes drowning victims to advocate water safety.

If you must know only one thing about water safety, know what drowning looks like.  Know it to spot someone in trouble or for you to recognize that you, yourself, are drowning.

Once you understand what drowning looks like, know how to survive when you get in water over your head.  Know how to float.  Know that anything that floats may save a life.
