Bill O'Melia will open the event by telling his son Drennen's story. Drennen's Dreams Foundation emphasizes the importance of high safety standards for lifeguards, pool management and aquatic facilities. If you are an American Red Cross Lifeguard, you have seen Bill and heard Drennen's story. This presentation goes deeper into what took place.

Pete DeQuincy will use a participatory and hands-on approach to show how to lead staff through a series of dry land and water scenarios, participants will learn about and receive practical training to take back to their facility. 


  • Establishing limits for scenarios
  • Provide clear focus and feedback
  • Managing scenario pace
  • Teaching trainers to work through challenges

This training will break down the skills needed to have success within simulated and real-life scenarios and excel at each skill along the way. Once this is achieved new staff can be taught and can understand how we can all perform together at a high level.
