Bronze Star Program Update

The Lifesaving Society has revised Bronze Star Item 6 – Object Support. The revised item reads “In deep water, support self at the surface for 3 minutes during which support a 4.5 kg (10 lb.) object for 1 minute“.

Feedback from Society members prompted this revision to better support candidate success, and to provide better alignment of the Bronze Star award within the lifesaving program continuum. Lifesaving Instructors should implement this revision immediately using the new Award Guide insert and revised Bronze Star test sheet.
