The American Red Cross Los Angeles Region will honor three lifeguards with the prestigious American Red Cross Lifesaving Award for Professional Responders.
At 9:30 am this morning Tuesday, Sept. 10, at the UCLA Sunset Canyon Recreation Center.
The honorees helped save the life of a man during an allergic reaction earlier this year.
The Lifesaving Award for Professional Responders is the highest award given by the Red Cross to individuals or group of individuals who save or sustain a life using skills learned in a Red Cross Training Services course.
On Jan. 12, Margit Maple, Jackson Lieberg and Ted White helped save the life of a man who experienced an allergic reaction and fell at Sunset Canyon Recreation Center in Los Angeles.
The honorees will receive the Lifesaving Award for Professional Responders for acting while on duty. This action exemplifies the highest degree of concern of one human being for another who is in distress. The certificate bears the signatures of the President and CEO of the American Red Cross Gail McGovern and Chairman Bonnie McElveen-Hunter.
