Top Off Your Guard Apparel with Lifeguard T-Shirts

Lifeguard T-Shirts
Lifeguard t-shirts keep your guards cool and protected.

While female lifeguards have greater coverage with their suits, men and some women desire something that will cover them a bit more while they sit in the sun and keep an eye on the water. With the use of lifeguard t-shirts, you will be able to obtain the additional coverage you would like, while still showing everyone you are the person to go to when they need help on the beach or at the pool. Choose from one of several different t-shirts that feature the lifeguard logo on them.

Speedo Guard T-Shirt

The white Speedo Guard T-Shirt may seem like a plain option, but it is a good one to provide you with greater coverage in the sun and to let people know you are the lifeguard on duty. The shirt is made from 100 percent cotton for breathability and is tagless so you don’t have to worry about an irritating tag that will leave you spending more time itching. To let everyone know you are the guard, the word “guard” and the cross logo are printed across the chest of the t-shirt in a bold red that will really stand out. The Speedo logo is featured on the sleeve as well.

Guard T-Shirt

If you are looking for something a little different so you can stand out even more, choose the Guard T-Shirt. This 100 percent cotton t-shirt features a fun guard logo on the front that is in both red and blue to help it stand out even further. This shirt is a great option if you are looking to save money on your guard t-shirt, while still having a durable shirt that will last a long time and suit your purposes.

Guard Quick Dry Tech Tee

Some lifeguards are concerned with the possibility of getting their t-shirt wet. This is why you can also choose the Guard Quick  Dry Tech Tee. This shirt is made from breathable polyester that will dry quickly if you don’t have enough time to remove the shirt before you enter the water. The shirt also wicks any sweat away, making it more comfortable to wear out in the hot sun all day long, along with UV protection.

Finding the right lifeguard t-shirts is essential to ensure your guards are comfortable, are protected from the sun and can do their job well. With all the choices available, you will be able to find the perfect option for all your guards.

Proper Lifeguard Equipment is Essential

Lifeguard Equipment
The equipment your lifeguards have will dictate their ability to help in an emergency.

Lifeguards are there to help protect everyone in the water. However, even the best lifeguard can’t always be effective if he doesn’t have the proper equipment on hand to help those who need it. If you need lifeguards to work for you at your pool or beach, it is important to make sure they have all the proper equipment. Even if you don’t supply the lifeguard suits, there are some things you should provide so everyone can stay safe.

Lifeguard Fanny Pack

A lifeguard is going to want to have everything he needs in easy reach, especially when there is an emergency. This is where a lifeguard fanny pack can work to your benefit. This fanny pack will advertise that you are the one to turn to for help, while providing you storage space for everything you may need in an emergency. It won’t hold larger items, but it is still an important tool to have with you at all times.

Lifeguard First Aid Kit

Perhaps one of the most important tools a lifeguard can keep close by is the lifeguard first aid kit. Available in a wide range of sizes, you can find one that will best fit your needs. For instance, if you work a busy beach, you may want a much larger kit than if you were a guard at a small private pool with few swimmers. These kits often contain everything you need for minor injuries, including bandages, antiseptic ointment, gloves, adhesive tape and more.

Other Equipment

Other important equipment for your lifeguards can include a lifeguard rescue tube and a guard backboard. Both of these items can be incredibly useful in emergency situations. The lifeguard rescue tube makes those difficult water rescues easier by providing buoyancy to the person being rescued, which makes it easier to tow the person in. A backboard is necessary in case of back or neck injuries sustained in a pool or other body of water.

Making sure your lifeguards are well-equipped for every emergency. No one wants anything bad to happen, but when you are around water and have swimmers of various experience levels, things can happen. It is important to make sure your lifeguards have everything they need to help. It is up to you to make sure your guards have all the lifeguard equipment they need, whether you will be buying the equipment or they will.

Lifeguard Rescue Equipment

Lifeguard rescue equipment varies by where you’re on duty. For example,

Lifeguard Rescue Equipment

someone manning the lifeguard stand at the public pool will need different rescue equipment than those on duty at a beach. It’s important to keep a checklist of the essential items you need to lifeguard and ensure they’re near lifeguards at all times. Many young teens take jobs as lifeguards, so if you’re in charge of a group of young people working as lifeguards, go over rules with them regularly to ensure the public’s safety.

1. Two way radio. – For lifeguards working a at a lake or beach a two way radio is required. This ensures there’s contact to emergency rescue services if a lifeguard needs assistance. Depending on the lifeguard’s work experience, it may be required to call for emergency rescue services every time a lifeguard rescues someone. This puts trained medical personnel on the scene in case the victim needs assistance after he or she is rescued. Two way radios should be tested regularly to guarantee they work. Extra batteries should never be far behind the two way radio. A cell phone should also be with lifeguards, although sometimes two way radios pick up better signal than a phone if you’re in a rural area.

2. Rescue Tube – A rescue tube is essential for any lifeguard rescue equipment stash. The rescue tube is the tube you every lifeguard with. Many walk up and down the beach with them, just in case they were to need them. The rescue tube has shown to be one of the most effective pieces of lifeguard rescue equipment than lifeguards use. They should be on the checklist for any pool, lake or ocean. The  rescue tube  works in any body of water and aids a lifeguard as he or she is bringing the victim back to the surface.

3. CPR mask. – A CPR mask that does not require assembly should be essential for any lifeguard. This shaves seconds off getting the mask on the victim, which can be valuable when you are in an emergency. A CPR mask prevents the lifeguard from having direct contact with the victim, while appropriately distributing air into the victim’s mouth during CPR.

Lifeguard rescue equipment that is functional and helps a lifeguard approach an emergency with ease are the most effective pieces you can stock. All lifeguard should be trained on the job (in addition to holding lifeguard certification) with equipment.

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.
