Lifesaving Bronze Medallion

Fit For Life: Teaches an understanding of the lifesaving principles embodied in the four components of water rescue education: judgment, knowledge, skill and fitness. Rescuers learn tows, carries, and defense and release methods in preparation for challenging rescues of increased risk involving conscious and unconscious victims of various types. Lifesavers develop stroke efficiency and endurance in a timed swim. Canadian Lifesaving Manual and exam fees are included! Swimming ability should be at a Lifesaving Swimmer 6 level or equivalent (Red Cross SwimKids 10, I Can Swim Stage 3 or YMCA Star 6). Prerequisites: Bronze Star or 13 years old.
