Coming Up in GLCCSchool: Electroshock Drowning

dancline - May 1, 2019

In this FREE webinar we introduce a recently recognized hazard to recreational boaters called "electroshock drowning" (ESD). On Tuesday, April 30, at 8:00 pm Eastern/7:00 pm Central, Dr. Alan Wentworth details personal experience in a "near miss" situation. Human vulnerability to electrical currents is examined, and we review some of the causes of this hazard in our waters. We go into the difficulties that rescue and resuscitation present. Some safety measures and preventative electrical devices that are now available are reviewed.  Viewers are introduced to some electrical basics and jargon needed for full understanding of ESD. Informative signage and pamphlets are available and their usage is emphasized. Don't miss Electroshock Drowning. Click here for more information and to register for class.
