Emergency drill at pool goes well

July 13, 2011

The annual mock emergency drill at the St. Marys Community Pool that took place Wednesday afternoon went well, according to pool manager Gregory L. Snelick.
Each year, Snelick and members of the St. Marys Area Ambulance Service coordinate a mock 911 call and drill to better prepare pool lifeguards in the execution of emergency procedures.
Snelick said pools and surrounding areas can be dangerous in any location, even under close supervision, and it only takes a second for someone to be in trouble.
"The purpose of the drill is to look for areas that need to be improved," Snelick said.
