Great Lakes Water Safe­ty Class


Sum­mer is around the cor­ner and that means warm weath­er (final­ly!). So let us get out our sun­screen and throw on our bathing suits, it is time to hit the water. But before you test the waters, why not test your safe­ty knowl­edge at the Great Lakes Water Safe­ty Class. This class will help you iden­ti­fy signs of a strug­gle, dan­ger, and even drown­ing. This Water Safe­ty class will also demon­strate how a floata­tion device can help save some­one from a life-threat­en­ing sit­u­a­tion. Get valu­able infor­ma­tion on first aid and CPR tech­niques from qual­i­fied agen­cies and instruc­tors. Also, if you like to hang ten, this is the per­fect class to help you bet­ter under­stand the pow­er of cur­rents for surf­ing. Get­ting to know the surf­ing con­di­tions will ensure you will have a safe, yet enjoy­able summer.

This class is free and open to the pub­lic! If you are inter­est­ed, the class is being held at the Waukegan Yacht Club this Sat­ur­day (June 6th) from 8:30am to 12:00pm. Space is lim­it­ed, so reserve your spot today by either call­ing the Waukegan Yacht Club or vis­it­ing here.
