A great showing for Edson in the Alberta Lifesaving Emergency Response Competition in Jasper.
Town of Edson placed second in the provincial competition, receiving silver medals.
The competition includes three events that lifeguard teams of 4 compete in to show assessment, first aid, and water rescue skills. Edson’s team consisted of Ayshja Fossheim, Thomas Pennings, Luke Steil and Katie Barnes.
Edson’s team also brought 8 lifeguards as volunteers for the event and received a thank you from the Lifesaving Society as it helped the event run very smooth throughout the day. It’s also hoped the exposure for these lifeguards will allow them to compete in future years.
