Lifeguard Courses as part of Saturday Swim School

Pending enrollment

If too few people enroll for the course, it will not occur. If more than 10 enroll, another teacher is required. Pointers to other courses are expected and encouraged too. Fees are expected and not published here.

Future Courses — But, ALL CLASSES are FILLED already:

The demand for these lifeguard classes are high!

Lifeguard Course is to meet in the water on Saturdays, April 7 and April 14, from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm at Oliver High School, 2323 Brighton Road, Northside, Pittsburgh, PA 15212. Plus, a Sunday session is slated for the CPR, AED and First Aid portions at a meeting room in Sewickley from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm on April 8, 2018.

Next Lifeguard Course: April 28 and May 5, 2018, from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm at Oliver High School,  2323 Brighton Road, Northside, Pittsburgh, PA 15212. Plus, a Sunday session is slated for the CPR, AED and First Aid portions at a meeting room in Sewickley from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm on April 29.

Insights:

A third session for each course is needed to cover the dry time for learning, practicing and testing for the CPR and First Aid sections of the class. Those sessions are yet to be scheduled and may be at another facility.

The teacher for both of these courses is Merci, the head swim coach for the teams at Oakland Catholic and Central Catholic.

Cost:

The cost to get re certified is $100. The cost for new lifeguards is $190.  You will need to bring a check to the first class period.

Three dead because of an gator crossing on I95 in South Carolina

Bad news. The car, a Kia Soul, the same type of car I have, was going down the highway with a mom and her two children. The car hit an alligator and caused an accident and three died.

BOWMAN, S.C. — Authorities say a mother from Florida and her two young children have died after their car hit an alligator on Interstate 95 in South Carolina.

Orangeburg County Chief Deputy Coroner Sean Fogle said 24-year-old Amber Stanley, her 4-year-old son Jack and 2-year-old daughter Autumn all died from burns after their car hit a tree and caught fire after hitting the alligator.

Highway Patrol Lance Cpl. Judd Jones says the alligator was crossing the northbound lanes of I-95 near the Interstate 26 exit when Stanley’s Kia Soul hit the animal around 12:50 a.m. Monday.

Fogle says the family was from Callahan, Florida.
