DCDOH Releases 2012 Drowning Prevention Seminar Schedule

 

The Dutchess County Department of Health has released its schedule for the 2012 Drowning Prevention Seminar for Lifeguards.  Seminars will be offered during the morning and afternoon hours.

These seminars are open to all lifeguards. Members of the general public interested in drowning prevention are also welcome to attend, particularly if they swim at a facility that is not required to have a lifeguard, such as a homeowner association’s pool.  All participants who successfully complete the program will be awarded with a certificate documenting their attendance.

For more than 20 years, the Department of Health has been conducting Drowning Prevention Seminars for Lifeguards and residents. These seminars include an informative video on drowning victim recognition as well as a discussion of lifeguard duties and responsibilities as they relate to Dutchess County Department of Health regulations.

Seating for the seminars is limited. To make a reservation, please contact the Department of Health, Monday-Friday from 9 am to 5 pm, at the telephone number provided for the specific session you wish to attend or you may send an e-mail to HealthInfo@DutchessNY.gov.  The Department of Health kindly asks that requests for information be directed only to the Department and not the seminar sites.

Any facility interested in setting up a training session for lifeguards or members of a homeowners’ association should contact the Dutchess County Department of Health at (845) 486-3404.

The schedule may be accessed through the County website at  www.DutchessNY.gov.  Additional seminars may be added to the schedule at a later date; please continue to check the website for updates.
