Lifesaving Resources (www.lifesaving.com) will be hosting a webinar on Monday, August 10, 2020, from 1:00 PM EST to 3:00 PM EST.

This comprehensive and fast-paced webinar will be of benefit to Lifeguards, Lifeguard Instructors and Supervisors, Aquatic Facility Operators and Managers, and Public Safety and Rescue personnel, as well as attorneys engaged in drowning litigation.

The case study is centered around an incident at a public swimming pool with lifeguards present in which a 62-year-old man drowned because the lifeguards failed to prevent, recognize, and effectively manage the incident.  The webinar includes graphic video surveillance video of this incident, as well as another fatal submersion incident and is a real eye-opener which explains in graphic detail what the Standard of Care should have been and how the facility management breached that standard of care.

The names of the victims, lifeguards, facility, etc. are not named within the case study.

The webinar is presented by Gerry Dworkin, a professional Aquatics Safety & Water Rescue Consultant for Lifesaving Resources of Kennebunkport, Maine.  Gerry has consulted as an Expert Witness in over 450 cases to date, and has been a subject matter expert for CNN, MSNBC, ABC's Good Morning America, CBS' Early Show, NBC's Today Show, The Weather Channel, The Discovery Channel, and The History Channel.  Gerry is currently a Firefighter/EMT with the Kennebunkport (Maine) Fire Department and EMS.  He has been a firefighter and EMT for over 50 years having been licensed in Connecticut, New York, Texas, Virginia, New Hampshire, and Maine.
