Outdoor pool season is right around the corner and there is A LOT to consider! Make a list of all the things you are going to need this year. What condition are your lifeguard chairs in? How about the umbrellas? Do you have all of your essential lifesaving items: Spineboards or backboards with a head immobilizer, guard rescue tubes, lifesaving ring buoys? Don’t forget to the backboard straps. Have you replenished your first aid kits and your AED materials? What about training? Do you have everything you need to keep your guards sharp and ready for action? And that is just for your lifeguards!
