    WATERCRAFT RESCUE INNOVATOR SHAWN ALLADIO TO PARTICIPATE IN EUROPEAN TRANSPORTATION CONFERENCE

    Annual Italian conference focus is on all forms of transportation

    TUSTIN , CALIF. , (3/5/2009) – Orange County, California based Shawn Alladio has been asked to present information about personal watercraft (PWC) rescue organization, training programs and technical elements of using PWC for water rescue.
    This year’s Italian International Conference on Safety in Transportation (ICOSIT) will be oriented primarily to land and marine transportation issues. K38’s expertise in quick response under normal conditions of water safety as well as major disasters on or adjacent to bodies of water lead to Alladio’s invitation.
    Alladio’s company, K38 Rescue, has been involved in the practice of water rescue service and the training of water rescue specialists in the use of PWC for nearly two decades. Alladio and members of her international network of K38 rescue affiliates have provided water safety services for a variety of international events including surfing contests and PWC races. Alladio organized and conducted several days of disaster rescue work using PWC in New Orleans in 2005 immediately following hurricane Katrina. Her work in the flooded portions of that city were recognized in a human interest story in New Yorker magazine.
    For the past several years Alladio’s K38 Rescue organization has enjoyed the use of Kawasaki JET SKI® watercraft as part of a sponsorship arrangement with Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. With these JET SKI watercraft K38 has managed the water safety and course marshal responsibilities for the International Jet Sport Boating Association World Finals championships. Alladio has also developed a national professional association, H2O Responders as part of the American Watercraft Association.
    At the ICOSIT Alladio will be presenting an overview of these professional boating safety and rescue initiatives. She will also provide in-depth briefings about organizing professional training for the use of PWC by boating rescue agencies.

    In 2009, K38 Water Safety celebrates 20 years of service to recreational, occupational and event management water safety and education! K38 has trained thousands of personnel from fire rescue, lifesaving, military, law enforcement and search and rescue agencies and is the worldwide recognized authority in the occupational use and application of Personal Watercraft. K38 is represented through accredited affiliates in 14 countries worldwide teaching water rescue, racing, officiating, event management, operations, swiftwater, flood, big wave, towsurfing and industry support using JET SKI watercraft for rescue or patrol applications.

    Ogni anno il National Water Safety Congress (NWSC) dedica un riconoscimento a chi durante gli anni precedenti hanno dato il loro contributo per lo sviluppo, la promozione ed il miglioramento della sicurezza in acqua, il quale verrà consegnato durante l’ “International Boating and Water Safety Summit” che quest’anno si terrà a Palm Harbor in Florida il 21 aprile.

    Quest’anno il premio andrà alla nostra istruttrice e fondatrice della K38 USA Shawn Alladio, per il suo continuo e instancabile lavoro di promozione ed educazione in tecniche di soccorso con aquabike (moto d’acqua), attraverso lo sviluppo e la standardizzazione di diversi corsi specifici per ogni tipo di intervento ed uso di questi mezzi diventati sempre più indispensabili in più di una situazione.

    La dedizione di Shawn nel “water safety” ha fatto si che la sua immagine sia diventata un’icona nel salvataggio con moto d’acqua non solo come Team Leader durante eventi di sport estremi che l’hanno portata sulle copertine di tutti i maggiori magazine mondiali grazie ai suoi salvataggi impossibili, ma l’hanno resa famosa anche nel quotidiano, tramite i corsi educativi tenuti in tuta la California, riuscendo a farsi amare sia dall’operatore professionista che dalle famiglie che vedevano in queste giornate quanto una corretta informazione fosse importante per evitare incidenti e disgrazie a volte irreversibili.

    Il contributo dato all’espansione delle aquabike da salvamento da parte della K38 International, ad oggi presente in 14 Paesi, è stato sinonimo di molteplici interventi e salvataggi che hanno portato un abbassamento della perdita di vite umane grazie a tempistiche di intervento ridotte ed immediate.

    La K38 è leader in questo settore del salvataggio grazie ai suoi 20 anni di esperienza e dei continui aggiornamenti dei loro istruttori che annualmente si incontrano per discutere ed esporre nuove tecniche testate durante il loro lavoro nei quattro angoli del continente.
    Shawn Alladio sarà presente anche all’ICOSIT 09 che si terrà a Benevento dal 9 al 13 marzo.
