Welcome to Carissa’s Caution!

Working to spread the word on swim safety in natural bodies of water!


Drowning Safety Fact of the Month


Every year, people drown when vehicles are overcome with water.  Always remember, Turn around, Don’t Drown!  Never drive into water, and make sure to have a tool in the car to break a window if necessary, in case you ever find yourself in this situation.


About Us

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to preventing childhood drownings. We do this by educating children and parents on when and where it’s safe to swim. We also help other families who have been affected by the tragedy of drowning by raising awareness of all types – pools, entrapments, boatings, etc.

We are inspired by a beautiful, high-spirited girl named Carissa Babcock, who died at 9 years old while swimming in a river. Her death, and all drownings, are 100% preventable. Help us keep any more children from drowning!
