   WHERE:   Lebanon, Indiana (20 minutes from Indianapolis Airport)


   WHEN: April 23rd through April 25th 1999


   HOST:   Boone County Water Response Team


   PRESENTED BY: LifeGuard Systems Inc.

Never before has this magnitude and quality of water rescue / recovery training been offered at one time.  In two weeks of intense training you can earn six to eight high standard certifications.  Also, Law Enforcement, EMS, Fire and Coroner CEU credits are available from some states. Join your peers for one, two, or up to fourteen days of the most effective water operation training available worldwide.

Mission:  When the Job is Done, You Need to go Home!

The mission of this conference is to improve the safety and effectiveness of rescue and recovery personnel.  Water-related incidents are on the rise and public safety personnel are far too often not properly prepared to conduct safe and effective operations. Drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death to children, and a common cause of adult accidental death. Hour-per-hour of on scene work, water operations may claim more public safety personnel lives than almost any other type of operations. In most every case, poor training, wrong or lack of equipment, and poor risk / benefit anaylsis were the cause.  It is time to make a change, and this conference and courses are the starting point.
