Lifeguards show their skills at Green Lakes competition
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – Lifeguards from across Upstate New York showed their skills at the 45th annual In-Service Training Competition at Green Lakes State Park Tuesday afternoon.
Teams from 18 state and county parks took part in events like deep water search-and-rescue and the water-rescue skills relay.
“It's a fun event. It's also a way for us to really focus in on what's really important for our lifeguarding staff in terms of training and making sure that the beach runs safely,” said Allison Peele, Chief Lifeguard at Green Lakes State Park.
Team One from Green Lakes won the overall competition.
