When Getting a Lifeguard
When getting a lifeguard for your pool party or special event you really need to make sure that they have a rescue tube, basic first aid kit, rescue mask and whistle (to get the attention of the patrons if something has gone wrong). Another important thing to look for is to make sure that they are certified by either Red Cross or some other organization. To make sure that the lifeguard is a good lifeguarding and that they are actually scanning the water you should check to see if the lifeguard has Head movement and a Recognizable pattern. This recognizable pattern should be about 10 to 15 seconds long and then repeat this is to ensure that everyone in the pool is seen.
