Many moons ago East Sacramento Preservation took this course and then watched over the Sutter Lawn pool one summer. It’s a great course that teaches basic water rescue… for swimmers, surfers, boaters and waders.
Basic Water Rescue
The American Red Cross Basic Water Rescue 4-hour course provides individuals with the knowledge and skills necessary to prevent, recognize and respond to many types of aquatic emergencies. This course is designed for participants who do not need to be trained as lifeguards, but who require certification in victim recognition and general first aid topics. The class includes an in-water skills session to practice basic water rescue techniques. Must be comfortable in chest-deep water. This course is excellent for care providers, foster parents, camp counselors, health and fitness facility employees, and others who are around water on a regular basis. Red Cross Certificate is valid for 3 years. Held at Pannell Meadowview Pool. Fee: $56
