The program features large boards with colourful graphics along with a supply of children's PFDs (personal floatation devices). These boards are erected at marinas, boat launching ramps, parks and swimming areas. The program is run on an honour system and offers free day use of the PFDs.
These loaner stations for children's PFDs (personal floatation devices) are very popular throughout the region and the Auxiliary receives many requests for new stations. By the end of 2005 there were 14 KFD boards set up across the region. Mustang Survival has come on board as a KDF partner and supplies the program with the PFDs. There are 25 boards set up in the region.
The RCMP has also come on board the Kids Don't Float program and has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the RCM-SAR to place stations in remote communities on the coast. Many of the children in these areas never wear a PFD while on the water. The program gives the RCMP an opportunity to develop a non-enforcement profile with the children and youth in these communities while providing an important service.
