Free Pool Safety Seminar Offered By Town And Catholic Health

Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino, members of the Town Board and Catholic Health are partnering to offer residents and non-residents a Free Pool Safety Seminar on Monday, July 8th, at 1 p.m. at Marjorie R. Post Community Park, located at 451 Unqua Road in Massapequa. Families are encouraged to attend as children under the age of 15 make up more than 78 percent of pool submersion injuries in the United States annually, with 67 percent of them including children under the age of three.

Supervisor Saladino stated, “Nothing is more important than the safety of our children, and to improve pool safety we offer this seminar to with the goal of saving lives through public education and awareness. We want you to have lots of fun in the sun while always be prepared to respond to emergencies.”

Seminar attendees will learn from professionals about healthy swimming, basic first aid, hypothermia, cramping, drowning prevention, basic CPR (not certification), recreational water wellness and EMS ambulance education. The seminar is sponsored by Optimum, News 12, KJOY 98.3FM, WHLI 1100AM, 103.1 The Wolf, Stew Leonard III Water Safety Foundation and Nassau County.
