    A Timing Issue

    One school of thought suggests that swimming pool lifeguards must scan their zone of coverage in 10 seconds and respond to persons in need within the next 20 seconds.

     
  • Careful Approach: The underwater approach to the victim is just as important as the surface approach when dealing with a victim of a possible head, neck and back injury. Have your lifeguards practice bringing the victim to the surface; too often this part of the sequence is rushed over. If your agency allows the use of a C-collar, make sure the lifeguards practice in-water application.
