I love being a lifeguard above almost everything, and I love sharing and hearing stories about other lifeguards and things we do. Feel free to submit pictures, stories, questions, and anything else lifeguard related. I reblog other people's things and I post my own!
Contact me at email@example.com or send me a message, I would love to answer questions and talk to all of you fellow lifeguards!
"I work at an indoor facility for a gym and it is single-guarded. Without us lifeguards at that facility, it would not be the top quality gym that it is. Many people are dependent on the lifeguard for assistance. It is easy to say that the lifeguard their is very important!"
you’re at a pool and start judging the guards/pool for; how unevenly the guards are dispersed, how they rotate (aka making sure somebody is always fully watching as the other climbs down and all), and how they’re scanning… and then spend the rest of the time scanning yourself because you realize that they’re really bad at all of that and are afraid something will happen
“Although the people on kayaks and swimmers have to wear a life jacket, it is still very important for a lifeguard to be there because swimmers can still be at risk for drowning.”
“Love most of my team and being outside and the pool itself but guests can be very rude and disrespectful.”
“I think it’s a really great job for committed teens as their first job. I think it can pay good and if you are scanning and doing your job correctly I think it can just be a fun time.”
"It’s ridiculous how many kids I have saved when their parent is right next to them, I am not a babysitter. Watch your child."
