Presenter: Wess Long, StarGuard ELITE
Most aquatic facility operators have pools that lifeguards and patrons perceive as safe as the water is “shallow”. This mindset presents many inherent risks, particularly to children 12 and under using the pools. This presentation addresses how pools ranging 3 to 5 feet are often lifeguarded and operated the same despite the varied depths, and the dangers this presents with poor operational practices, complacency, and parental supervision.
