Lifeguard Equipment

Besides proper supervision, access to lifeguard equipment plays an equal importance during lifeguarding duties.  You will be introduced to these common tools in your respective training courses and develop a clear understanding of its use and limitations. A good working knowledge of these accessories will assist and boost your confidence in any water emergency.  Some of the basic gears are:

Rescue Flotation Devices – These are rescue aids that are designed for throwing to struggling swimmers or used for towing casualties.  Types of rescue aids include life buoy, rescue can and rescue tube in varying sizes.

First-Aid Kit – In the Standard Adult First Aid + AED Course, you will be familiar with simple first aid tools and its application.  Minor injuries treatment items includes bandages, disinfectants, antiseptic cream while major emergencies equipment consists of a spinal immobilization board, an automated external defibrillator (AED), a resuscitator and oxygen equipment.   

Whistle – Its purpose is to grab swimmers’ attention to pre-empt unsafe behaviour or to signal that the pool must be cleared immediately due to emergency like approaching thunderstorm or a drowning incident.  The whistle is also use to broadcast closing time as well as to communicate with fellow lifeguards.

Walkie-Talkie – For larger venues, you may be issued wireless devices for communication.

Loud Hailer – At some noisy water-facilities, loud-hailer are used to make clear and important announcements to swimmers.

Polarized Sunglasses – A necessary eye-care product to protect lifeguard’s vision is a pair of quality polarized sunglasses.  The glasses reduce the sun’s harmful glare that is reflected off the water so that the lifeguard’s vision is not compromised.
