Event Details

Summary:

The purpose of the American Red Cross Lifeguarding course is to provide entry-level lifeguard participants with the knowledge and skills to prevent, recognize and respond to aquatic emergencies and to provide care for breathing and cardiac emergencies, injuries and sudden illnesses until emergency medical services (EMS) personnel take over.

Documentation of the extenuating circumstance must be submitted to Jess Muir (please see below for contact information). Please note: Failing the lifeguard pretest, not showing up to the lifeguard class, missing a day of the lifeguard class, or showing up late to the lifeguard class does not qualify the participant for a refund nor does it qualify as an extenuating circumstance.
