The Westfield Memorial Pool officially opened up for the season last weekend. But even if you only go to the beach, you really should take a Westfield Water Safety Class. Why? Because approximately 4000 people die in the US from downing each year. In fact, it is the #1 cause of death in children between the ages of one and four and the #2 cause of death in children between the ages of five and 14.
What: Westfield Water Safety Class

Westfield Water Safety Class
Do you have young kids? Are you at least 16 years old and plan on babysitting kids this summer? If so, then you should take this water safety class. You will learn what signs to watch out for when a child starts to struggle in the water. Also, you will be taught how to avoid an emergency in the first place. The class also includes basic CPR techniques as well as first aid training. To register, visit the YMCA’s website here. If you care for the safety of your loved ones while playing in the water this summer, please sign up for the YMCA’s water safety class and CPR certification today. This is the only water safety class that the Y will be offering this summer. So, take advantage of it while you can.
