The unofficial start of Summer is just a couple of weeks away. That means pools will be opening around the area, and to get prepared they will need lifeguards.
Officials at Pipestem Resort State Park in Summers County are helping to train lifeguards before the Memorial Day weekend. At the completion of the course, participants will be certified. According to the recreation supervisor at the park, the three day course is from Friday, May 15, 2015 and lasts through Sunday, May 17. It will be held at the resort’s indoor pool.
The course also certifies participants in First Aid, CPR and the use of automatic external defibrillators. The cost is $200 a person. More events going on at Pipestem Resort State Park can be found at the park’s website.
