Aquatic Safety – Everyone’s business, how to stay safe in swimming pools!

You are invited to join Celebration Lifelong for this very important lecture on Wednesday, September 16; 7 p.m. via Zoom. You do not need to be a member of Celebration Lifelong to participate – this Lifelong Evening Lecture is being offered FREE and is open to the public. This engaging workshop will take the audience through real life stories of drowning and other aquatic related injuries that take place in swimming pools. The intent and purpose behind this lecture is to raise the awareness around the inherent risks that water presents and to provide reasonable and actionable solutions that everyone can employ.

Michael Oostman is an aquatic safety expert that has worked in the field since 1992. He has investigated over 900 drowning events, has trained lifeguards around the world as well as serving as a testifying expert in hundreds of lawsuits. As a Celebration resident, Michael has a vested interest in sharing this message with our community.

The Zoom invitation link will be included in Town Hall’s Friday Flash email on Friday, September 11 and will be posted on the Celebration Foundation’s Facebook page. For further information, please contact Celebration Lifelong at 407-595-5905 or email Learn more about this program and others at
