Yale University will be conducting is annual alewife sampling on Rogers Lake from Monday, Aug. 10, through Saturday, Aug. 15. The sampling will take place between sunset and 2:00 a.m., and involve the use of a large net and some floating green and white lights. DEEP has been notified of this activity. Please stay clear if you are out on the lake during this time.
On Monday, Feb. 27, at 1:00 p.m., at the Lymes’ Senior Center, the center will offer a free training session in the use of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs), which will be led by two local emergency medical technicians (EMTs), Colleen Atkinson and Doug LoPresti. The training session will explain how to recognize when someone is experiencing cardiac arrest and how to use this type of defibrillator. The EMTs will also demonstrate how to use hands-only CPR integrated with the use of an AED while waiting for an ambulance to arrive. The program is free and open to the public. To register for the free event, please call the senior center at 860-434-4127.
