Agenda points from Mark Rauterkus

  • Group photo
  • Anyone else can help with as a webmaster, as I love open-source.
  • Desire swim teams to become more vigilant in training lifeguards
  • Formation of Collegiate Lifeguard Clubs, as well as clubs at the High Schools. Back in the day, at New Trier, one of the largest clubs was "The Guard." 
  • Get Lifeguards to march in the Labor Day Parade, perhaps with first responders (Firefighters, EMS, Police and even Nurses)

New drowning detection technology

Rick Kauffman, Founder of The Kels Group posted

His podcaste episode includes a LIVE DEMO that is taking place January 6, 2019.

I will be present at this demonstration as I have a personal interest in this technology. I believe that it will be a game changer and potentially save 1,000’s of lives that otherwise these people could become victims of drowning or non-fatal drownings

In this episode I will give you a way to follow my status updates so if you would like to learn more as I will be sharing with you first hand what we are going to learn in real time just as if you would be there yourself.

If you would have any question that you would like me to ask let me know and if time would allow I will ask them and broadcast the answers on next week podcast.
