Open Water and Boating Safety Training at the Olean YMCA
Yesterday, our Safe Kids coordinator, Sydney, was able to deliver a training to the Friendship School District’s swimming lesson class at the Olean Family YMCA. At this event, she was able to educate individuals on open water and boating safety and distribute 43 life jackets. Thanks to Safe Kids Worldwide and the US Coast Guard for providing funding to allow us to distribute these life jackets to those in need. Also, thank you to the Olean Family YMCA and the YMCA’s Aquatics Director, Ashly, for partnering with us on this training.
Today marks the end of the 5-week Southern Tier EMT-B Academy, with the students completing the Practical Skills Exam. We had 16 individuals in this course supported by the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation. We look forward to the students completing the NYS Certification Exam in the next few weeks and starting to serve the community as EMTs.
