Program 1

Ice Safety for Schools©

One of our flagship programs is our “Ice Safety for Schools" program.  Developed in 2002, this program is designed to educate children from grades K-12  of the dangers of being on ice.  Since its inception our volunteers have presented this interactive program to over 13,000 children.  In 2005 this program received international acclaim, being awarded the “Friends of Fins Award” for “Creative Water Safety Education for Kids” from the International Association of Dive Rescue Specialists.

Program 2

From Battlefield to Streets: One Uniform to Another©

Reintegrating into civilian life can be a challenging time for our service men  and women after their military service.  Some of the experiences of recent conflicts have challenged them psychologically in ways not experienced in prior conflicts.
One of our latest endeavors has been the co-development of a training program“From Battlefield to Streets: One Uniform to Another"in which we educate participants on how provide psychological assistance to these individuals. This internationally recognized program has been attended by and received acclaim from both civilian counselors and members from each of the service branches.

Program 3

Dive Team Initiative

Even with the best designed and practiced prevention initiatives, issues can arise where outside assistance may be necessary.  It may involve a local incident such as a child missing in a lake, to an incident of national or international significance such as a terrorist or natural disaster event.
At NPSS we offer a variety of consultative and response services.  We have  entered into partnerships with many local and national agencies to ensure the best response possible.
Examples of our response programs include, but are not limited to:
Telephone ConsultationEmergency Dive Team ResponseCISM support services
