            Flagler County Fire Rescue, the Flagler County Health Department through its “Waterproof FL” efforts, Flagler County Schools and EM Pros (Emergency Medicine Professionals) will participate by providing instruction and informational literature about water safety and survival skills, sun safety, basic CPR and pool safety.
