Lifeguarding Drill: 3-Rescuer CPR/AED position
This is the second drill in the 3-Rescuer CPR position drills. (Aquatics International, "CPR: Synchronized Teamwork", May 2013)
Lifeguards are in 3-person teams, with a primary rescuer, a secondary rescuer and a tertiary rescuer. A manikin will be used for the victim.
Rescuers will be wearing a fanny pack equipped with gloves and a pocket mask. Rescuers will also bring in an AED.
Victim is considered a dry victim with no spinal injury.
Rescuers will position themselves around the victim to provide the following skills:
Opening the airway
AED Set up
This is an all pass drill, meaning all rescuers must complete the drill for the lifeguard team to receive a pass. This drill must be completed in 5 seconds.
A 6-12 lifeguard team is preferred. Depending on size of staff, modify to accomodate needs.
