CPRS Forum Highlight
Procedures/Protocol for Major Emergencies/Fatalities
We recently had a major drowning emergency that luckily went exactly as we train for and lifeguards responded appropriately/timely enough to prevent a boy from losing his life and/or suffering any major injuries.

Though Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services won't present a finalized list of parks to San Jose City Council until month's end at the earliest, the department has been working with the Martin-Fontana Parks Association group in Almaden Valley to use Jeffrey Fontana Park as a model.
