As most aquatics folks, I’ve been involved with water activities since childhood – Learned to swim in the Schyulkill River in Reading, PA, followed by lessons at the local “Y”, summers of boating and canoeing at Girl Scout Camp, earning Red Cross Junior and Senior Lifesaving, and Water Safety Instructor. I would have received “Exceeds” at pulling the victim (now GID: “Guest In Distress) on to the dock, and performing the “back pressure/arm lift” procedure while yelling “call the fire department”. There were no 911, EMS, CPR, O2, or AED options 50 years ago!
