SHAWN ALLADIO RECEIVES AWARD OF MERIT
FROM THE NATIONAL WATER SAFETY CONGRESS
Annual Award recognizes contributors to water recreation safety
TUSTIN , CALIF. (5/20/09) Shawn Alladio was awarded the National Water Safety Congress (NWSC) Award of Merit for her work in promoting and advancing water recreation safety. The NWSC makes this annual award to individuals and organizations that have made outstanding contributions to water safety during the previous year.
In announcing Ms. Alladio’s award, NWSC Regional Vice President Ed Huntsman said ” This award recognizes your continuing efforts to train first responders of boating and water related accidents involving recreational boaters and other users of the nation’s waterways.” The NWSC award notification goes on to recognize Alladio’s devotion to safety in developing and sharing the evolving emergency rescue techniques and training practices that use personal watercraft.
For the past several years Alladio’s K38 Rescue organization has used Kawasaki JET SKI® watercraft as part of a sponsorship arrangement with Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. With these JET SKI watercraft K38 has conducted dozens of hands-on safety training programs for a variety of public safety agencies. She has also led a number of boating safety seminars for the general boating public and organized a national professional association for boating rescue and enforcement personnel called H2O Responders, now a part of the American Watercraft Association.
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. It 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. K38 was founded by Shawn Alladio, a professional personal watercraft racer for 2 decades, and a National Safe Boating Council instructor and water rescue professional. K38’s motto is ‘The Life You Save May Be Your Own’
