In Bronze Medallion we emphasize the lifesaving principles embodied in the four components of water-rescue education: judgement, knowledge, skill, and fitness. Rescuers learn tows and carries as well as defence methods and releases, preparing themselves for challenging rescues of increased risk involving conscious and unconscious victims of various types.
To take this 20 hour course, you must be 13 years or older, or have completed Bronze Star. The course requires 100% attendance and participation to complete. The manual is included in the program fee.
Bronze Medallion is a Lifesaving Society (LS) certification offered through the YMCA.
