The Benefits of Farmers Markets and Parks

http://apps.nrpa.org/store/images/products/webinar.jpg
Description: Over the past decade, there has been steady growth across the farmers market industry nationwide with new market locations popping up in communities of all shapes and sizes. Local park and recreation agencies are one of the venues that have seen this growth firsthand. To gain a better understanding of the role local agencies play in regards to farmers markets and promoting access to healthy and local produce, NRPA recently conducted a survey of the field. Join NRPA's Vice President of Professional Development, Research and Technology as he shares key findings from the survey, including where challenges continue to exist for local agencies. Allison Colman, Director of Health, and Maureen Acquino, Program Manager, will also share national trends within local agriculture, including consumer demands, and the benefits of farmers markets being hosted in parks. Examples of successful models that have been documented across the field will also be shared. CEUs: 0.0

9 Easy Steps To Managing Lightning At Your Facility

https://apps.nrpa.org/store/images/products/EarthNetworkLogo.jpg
Description: It only takes a split second for tragedy to strike from the sky, literally! Severe weather like lightning and dangerous thunderstorms continues to threaten park staff and visitors especially during the warm summer months. Just recently, on May 18th, 2019, a woman was struck and injured by lightning while fishing at Smithville Lake in Missouri. In fact, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reports that about two-thirds of all lightning deaths in the U.S. are associated with outdoor recreation activities. Does your facility have a lightning safety policy in place? The threat of lightning should be taken seriously by every recreational facility and park. Lightning is an early indicator of other severe weather phenomena like severe thunderstorms, hails, tornadoes, and even high winds! However, there is good news. Lightning can be planned for, monitored, and alerted upon effectively at your facility. Let us show you how. CEUs: 0.0

Drownings in Lifeguarded Pools

http://apps.nrpa.org/store/images/products/Aquatics-Icon_resized.png
Description: Lifeguards are expected to respond to patrons in distress before injury occurs. However, per a 2011 report from the CDC, lifeguards failed to do so several hundred times from 2000 to 2008. When drownings occur with lifeguards on duty, lifeguards are often blamed for the tragedy. But, based on scientific studies, lifeguards may unknowingly be positioned where drowning victims cannot be identified. Failing to properly position lifeguards provides a false sense of security to the public and sets lifeguards up to fail. This session will provide scientifically-based drowning prevention strategies that can be easily adopted by any facility that employs lifeguards. CEU's: 0.1
