Ranger Patrol is the second level of the Lifesaving Society’s 3 level Canadian Swim Patrol Program for swimmers who are ready to go beyond learn-to-swim. Swimmers will continue to refine their strokes and underwater skills. They will work on their physical conditioning by supporting a 5-pound object in deep water for 2 minutes, carrying a 5 pound object with lifesaving kick for 25m, and completing a timed swim of 200m in 6 minutes. Swimmers will learn how to conduct a primary assessment on a conscious and cooperative victim, conduct treatment of an obstructed airway, and treat for shock. They will be able to recognize and simulate weak vs non-swimmers vs unconscious swimmers. Swimmers will complete a non-contact, in-water rescue.

Carleton University suspended vaccination & masking requirements for participation in in-person Carleton activities in May/June 2022. The evolution of Covid-19 and public health conditions are difficult to predict, so these decisions were contingent on current conditions and directions continuing. Masking and other safety measures may be reinstated at a later time. Carleton University recommends the use of masks indoors when physical distance cannot be maintained.
