Rescue TubeWhether you’re lifeguarding by the beach, lake, or pool, a rescue tube is an essential item for all lifeguards. There are many different rescue techniques that you can use whether in the water as a floatation device and tow line or out of the water as a throwable floatation device and also as an extension to reach out to your victim. The rescue tubes are also suitable for ice rescue, but no need to worry about that if you are like me and live in Texas.
The rescue tubes are covered with heavy-duty vinyl and made of closed-cell foam, the guard rescue tube does not absorb water, so you don’t have to worry about rotting or mildew.  To extend the life and provide more comfort then you shouldGuard Rescue Tube Cover look into getting a rescue tube cover. The rescue tube cover is used to slide over the rescue tube to protect the tube from the constant usage they go through. It’s also a wise investment to protect your tubes from Guards picking at them or dragging them on the cement. With the guard tube covers you will maximize the life of your rescue tubes. These are highly recommended for all rescue tubes.




Lifeguard Swimsuits Buying Tips

3 04 2010

Spring is here and summer is right around the corner. Female Lifeguard SwimsuitsNow is the time to order your lifeguard swimsuit for your summer lifeguard job. There are a lot of swimsuits to choose from and we have some tips to help you find the perfect lifeguard swim suit.

Since you will be wearing your swimsuit everyday this summer you will want something that is comfortable and that will last you all summer. We know that lifeguards are not the top earners so no need to buy more swimsuits than what you actually need. Our suggestion is to look for a polyester swimsuit. The polyester swimsuits are designed to last 3-10 times longer than the traditional lycra lifeguard swimsuits. Look for 100% polyester swimsuits or a blend of polyester and PBT - a polyester blend material designed to stretch and perform like the lycra swimsuits do.

The next tip that we suggest when shopping for a lifeguard swimsuit is to look for a straps that will be comfortable. There are two basic strap designs – the wide strap and the thin strap. The wide strap swimsuits are typically more comfortable since the straps do not dig into your shoulders and they also provide you with more support. However many people prefer the thin strap swimsuits and they say the straps can be just as comfortable to wear. Plus you get the added benefit of smaller tan lines and HELLO girls we all know that you are only lifeguarding to get the great tan.

Lifeguard Spineboard

Lifeguard Spineboard

Many swimming pools are about to open for the summer swim season and they need to make sure that they have all of the necessary rescue and lifesaving equipment on hand. One of the most important items for swimming pools to have is the lifeguard backboard or spineboard. This rescue backboard is required for all swimming pools to have on hand. There are many styles to choose from but we have found a cheap life guard backboard that will fit into every pool’s budget, the Pro-Eco Spineboard. The lifeguard Pro-Eco backboard has a seamless design that prevents any fluid contamination and a 500lb weight capacity, plus it is UV stable which makes it perfect for outdoor swimming pools. The Rapid Deployment Products Pro-Lite Spineboard is the best choice for swimming pools. This new spine board has an unlimited weight capacity and is made of lightweight, one-piece x-ray translucent polyethylene plastic with molded-in pins, and it is also UV stable. Why the Pro-Lite Spineboard and not different spine board? Because there is a 100% guarantee for the life of the spineboard under normal conditions, plus it is guaranteed not to warp for the life of the spineboard. Don’t mess around with those wood backboards that you are needing to replace every couple of yearsBackboard FloatingWe recommend the use of backboard head immobilizer with this lifeguard spine board. The head immobilizer will keep the head and neck firmly in place while on the back board. You will also need to get the velcro straps for the spineboard which is a total strap system for a fast and firm immobilization.

Lifeguard Rescue Tubes

Lifeguard Rescue Tube

Lifeguard Rescue Tube

As many of you might know the most important piece of equipment for lifeguards is the rescue tube. The guard rescue tube is a traditional wraparound tube designed for beach, lake or pool in the water rescues. It can be handed to a victim for a close-in assist, or used to reach a struggling victim without contact, towing a passive unconscious victim, or even supporting the rescuer. The rescue tube will never absorb water, rot or mildew because it is made from closed cell “Ensolite” foam and covered with a heavy-duty red vinyl skin. There is often a safe quick-release buckle and tow line with a looped end that make pulling the victim to safety easy work for the lifeguard. Rescue tubes are available in a couple of different sizes depending on the use. You can find lifeguard rescue tubes and other rescue equipment at D&J Sports Swim Shop.
