Great Night for the Lifesavers in South Korea
Lifesaving Society Korea (LSK), the research and training institute for drowning prevention and first aid promotion in South Korea, organized Lifesavers' Night on February 10th, 2017
Lifesavers' Night (LSN) is the annual gathering of the members of Lifesaving Society Korea (LSK) to celebrate the success of drowning prevention over the past season and the remarkable achievement by LSK and its members in the nation. In 2017, LSK organized approximately 2,600 trainings and certified about 100,000 lifesavers. "Best Lifesaver" was also awarded to the lifeguard and first aider who saved lives and who was actively involved in lifesaving activities throughout their communities. During the event, the annual business plan was presented, including the Vision 2020 project, which establishes the stable national structure and network of livesaving.
LSK has been working with the Coastal Education and Research Foundation (CERF) to promote safety and research throughout coastal areas and has published Journal of Coastal Research (JCR) Special Issues in accordance with the International Water Safety Symposium since 2014. Representatives from other lifesaving related organizations delivered video greetings, as well as Dr. Chris Makowski, who sent a celebration message on behalf of CERF.
