YMCA performs more realistic drills

Posted: Updated:

 The weather is blistering hot and school is out that means families will be flocking to the pool to cool off...and more swimmers could mean more accidents and drownings.

 YMCA Aquatics Director Naomi Johnson "we had a lot of accidents last year the knowledge of what to in an emergency around the pool will cut down on these drownings and incidents greatly"

This drill was a little different from others, the Aquatics department wanted to prepare the lifeguards for real life situations. The drill included rescue, resuscitation, and the use of real EMS team.

With these drills and constant practice throughout the year, the Y Aquatics staff hopes to be ready for whatever action may come this summer season.
