NDPA Social Media Policies

The NDPA Water Safety Warriors Private Group is a private chat/conversation/discussion forum for members of our community.

When discussing something as serious and emotional as the death of a child, mother, father, sister, brother, or friend, we are well aware that people feel very passionately about what they consider to be the best methods to apply in order to save lives.

As “the alliance”, we recognize the need our members, partners, followers and friends have for a place and space to feel empowered to communicate, express opinions and exchange ideas. NDPA Water Safety Warriors Group as created to fill such a need. Keeping in mind that all our members are striving toward the same goal, to prevent death due to a water related tragedy, we expect that the communication on our page will be conducted in a manner that is respectful, appropriate and kind.

Because we seriously assume our role as moderators to keep abuse away from our community and enforce our standards to maintain a place for safe debate and discussion, we have developed the following community standards and social media policies. We encourage everyone to read them so we can continue to host this critical exchange of ideas and information that ultimately lead to lives saved.

Failure to comply with them will result in your removal from the group without further notice.

Not reading them is NOT an excuse for breaking them.
