Rescue tubes are an essential safety component at any body of water, including pools and beaches. Anywhere people can swim should have the presence of the tubes in addition to the presence of lifeguards or responsible adults to help get the victims to safety. These tubes are meant as the first line of defense when someone needs to be rescued, whether they are close by or a large distance away from the person attempting to rescue them. They offer the added ability to bring the victim to safety.
At the Pool
Public pools typically require the lifeguards to be outfitted with a guard rescue tube. The bright red color, vibrant white GUARD lettering and comfortable shoulder strap make them easy to carry at all times when guarding a pool. They are available in a variety of sizes, ranging from 40 inches to 54 inches, making it easy to find one to fit every guard comfortably. For the guard with smaller hands, the Cut-a-Way Guard Rescue Tube offers stability while holding it and trying to rescue a person in trouble.
At the Beach
The lifeguard rescue tube works on any body of water, including the beach. If you find yourself needing to rescue someone who is close to the shore, you can hold on to one end and have the victim grab the other end. This helps you provide them with assistance getting back to shore quickly and easily. Oftentimes at the beach, a victim starts to suffer from the large waves and needs help instantly. In these cases, you can get the rescue tube to them without any contact. This enables the victim to obtain stability before you even get to them, making it easier for you to bring them back to shore when you reach them. It is also beneficial for guards to be able to bring unconscious victims back to shore without too much struggle, even in tough beach waves.
Even though you don’t have lifeguards at home, you still have responsible adults who need to keep watch on everyone who swims in their pool. It is perfectly acceptable for swimming pool owners to have a guard rescue tube on hand in case of any type of emergency. This product, which is mold and mildew resistant and never absorbs water, gives you the added sense of security of being able to rescue anyone who is in need in your pool.
