Community Safety Courses

The YMCA of the Coastal Bend provides both CPR/First Aid training as well as Lifeguard training periodically throughout the year. The Y provides these courses both to its members and the community to ensure that our community is prepared. We strive to make a safe and fun community both in and out of the water.
