Dear Mr. Lee:

Based on media reports, at least four New Jersey water parks appear to be putting the public at risk by training their lifeguards to perform an unapproved, experimental, thoroughly-discredited drowning rescue treatment.

This is to request that your agency review the following information, interview the water park employees responsible for overseeing their companies' lifeguard training, and provide me with a determination of your findings.
