The Branson Parks & Recreation Department will host a free Water Safety and Survival Skills Class on August 5 at the Branson AquaPlex, located at 1501 Branson Hills Pkwy, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. to instruct attendees on in-water survival skills, rescue techniques, and hands only CPR.
The class is designed for those 16-years old and older who want to gain confidence around the water and for those who find themselves in situations where they may need to care for others around bodies of water. The one-hour class will be provided both in water and on land by certified lifeguard instructor and Branson AquaPlex Pool Manager, Bunny Gilchrist.
While this is a free class, the public is encouraged to register online or in person at the Branson RecPlex as there are limited spots available. Participants will need to bring swimwear and a towel.
