Stop the Bleed - Medical Lecture Series with Allegheny Health Network

07/20/2020 12:40 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

2020 has been an unusual year so far, but Presque Isle Lifeguards are back on the beaches and hard at work! As in previous years, the Lifeguard Operations are offering the Medical Lecture Series. Last year, we partnered with Allegheny Health Network for the first time, and we are happy that partnership has been able to continue! 

On July 19, AHN came out the the Tom Ridge Environmental Center to review "Stop the Bleed". Whether this was new or a review, all the lifeguards who attended were able to get hands-on training to help prepare them to deal with severely bleeding injuries they could encounter both on and off the job.

As you can see, the lifeguards worked in small groups and wore personal protective equipment throughout the training. 

In the event of an actual emergency involving contact with another person on the park, Lifeguards will have access to and be required to use more advanced PPE including safety glasses, N95 mask, gloves, and a protective gown.

Even in this unprecedented time, safety for the Lifeguards and park guests is clearly still the top priority of the Presque Isle Lifeguard Operation.
