Lifeguards exercise rescue skills

ST. MARYS - As part of their biennial recertification, lifeguards at the St. Marys Community Pool at Memorial Park exercised a number of rescue skills needed in various rescue scenarios during an inservice day held on Sunday. According to pool manager Greg Snelick, nearly 400 people had visited the pool throughout the day on Sunday. Snelick said that the goal of the inservice days and recertification process is ensuring the public's safety through making sure those on guard are prepared for any number of emergency situations that may arise. "First of all, we have inservices to prepare in case an emergency does happen here in the pool, we're prepared. We want to be prepared and know exactly what to do in case those situations do come up," Snelick said.
