|Home Pool/Water Safety Checks||As the weather warms families may find themselves frequenting pools more often. These facts should be kept in mind while cooling off during the hot summer months.|
Children can drown in only an inch of water.
Drowning is the leading cause of death for children under the age of 5 in Florida. It is the second leading cause of death for children 14 and under.
In 2006, Lee County experienced a rash of near-drowning’s. More than 30 children were rushed to the hospital in a period of 4 weeks.
Drowning is ‘the silent killer’. Most often there is no cry for help, and very little sound from splashing.

|CERT||Federal Emergency Management Agency, using a model created by the Los Angeles City Fire Department, began promoting nationwide use of the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) concept in 1994. Since then, CERT’s have been established in hundreds of communities.
CERT training promotes a partnering effort between emergency services and the people that they serve. The Goal is for emergency personnel to train member of neighborhoods, community organizations, or workplaces in basic response skills. If a disastrous event overwhelms or delays the community’s professional response, CERT members can assist others by applying the basic response and organizational skills that they learned during the training. These skills can help save and sustain lives following a disaster until help arrives. CERT skills also apply to daily emergencies.
The CERT program consists of classroom education and practical skills training in the following areas: Disaster preparedness, Fire Suppression, Disaster Medical Operations, Light Search and Rescue, Disaster Psychology, Terrorism.
The program is conducted within our facility and is FREE of charge. Please contact us to be placed on the CERT waitlist if you are interested in participating.
