The safety of our members is a priority for the YMCA, that’s why we make sure all of our Aquatics staff are properly trained and certified. Our lifeguards and swim instructors are our first responders and in May, 152 of them came together at the Pembroke Pines YMCA Aquatic Center where they received training on Test Mark Protect, Emergency Action Plans, customer service and programming. They were also able to get certified or recertify for required CPR, AED and other required certifications. This was a great opportunity for Aquatics staff to showcase their skills and knowledge.
Our lifeguards and swim instructors are our first responders. We appreciate the training and work that goes into keeping everyone safe in our pools.
