“I am truly honored for this special recognition,” states Vassallo. “To have someone of Kix’s stature and notoriety recognize the importance of this program and help us disseminate the message of water safety to his devoted country fan base is a huge help to our cause.”

For over a dozen years, Vassallo has continued his mission to teach homeowners and families how to have positive water experiences. Utilizing a kid-friendly, sidekick named Duckie, Vassallo is able to catch the attention of children and their parents, allowing him the opportunity to provide vital information about the importance of practicing safety measures, around all bodies of water.

His message is relevant to families across the nation whether they own a pool or not. “Drowning can be prevented,” remarks Vassallo.

The popular Float Like A Duck™ program focuses on the ABCD’s of water safety.  The annual event grows each year with the addition of new activities and community partners. This year, Vassallo collaborated with Clark Country to produce a 30-second Water Safety PSA. The video can be viewed on YouTube at  .

Vassallo was recognized in 2014 by The National Drowning Prevention Alliance with the Community Lifesaver Award.  Vassallo and Duckie make appearances throughout the year at no-charge to schools, community events, and hospitals.  And, the duo has also produced special water safety video messages for organizations outside the Las Vegas area.
