Huntington, NY - August 23, 2017 - Each summer, thousands of people visit the Dix Hills Pool and Town beaches for a respite from the summer heat. However, while our swimmers and beachgoers enjoy themselves, it’s important that we have well-trained and experienced lifeguards on staff in case of emergencies.
On the 21st of July, Falyn Dwyer, a lifeguard stationed at Fleet’s Cove Beach in Huntington was notified about a swimmer in distress and immediately sprang into action. Once she brought the swimmer to shore, Falyn’s life-saving skills were put to task. Falyn was able to successfully resuscitate the swimmer and then called for Emergency Medical Service [EMS] assistance. The swimmer was transported to Huntington Hospital and made a full recovery. 
“The Town of Huntington prides itself on providing our lifeguards and support staff with vital lifesaving training and skills to better prepare themselves in the event of an emergency,” stated Councilman Mark Cuthbertson. “Thanks to Falyn Dwyer’s quick thinking actions, she was instrumental in saving a life, averting what could have been a tragic loss to family and community,” added Cuthbertson.
Falyn recently graduated from Harborfields High school where she excelled as a scholar athlete. She will be attending Fordham University this fall.
