Recognizing dangerous behaviors

Recognizing dangerous behaviors is an important skill to have as a lifeguard. By knowing all the signs and being able to recognize these behaviors, it can prevent an emergency from occurring. This can range from asking a child to move to the shallower side of the pool, stopping teenagers from pushing each other into the pool, etc. Dangerous behaviors usually occur from weak swimmers. Weak swimmers bob in and out of water, crawling along the pool deck or gutter, reaching for someone or something to keep themselves afloat, or they are wearing their lifejacket improperly. More dangerous behaviors are when swimmers try to swim underwater after barely recuperating their breath, experiencing a medical emergency, etc. Being on the lookout for these types of behaviors are preventive to injury and emergencies.
