This weekend is the unofficial beginning of summer and it also means the start of lifeguard season. Make no mistake, anytime a lifeguard is on the job is lifeguard season. However, Memorial Day and the beginning of summer signal a number of things including the end of the school year, a rising heat index, the local pool opening, families taking vacations and people flocking to the beach. More people looking to cool off and relax by getting in the water leads to greater responsibility, and potentially longer hours, for lifeguards everywhere. Translated, summer is lifeguard season.
Lifeguards ensure the safety of everyone in and around the water. Sometimes the rest of us just can’t help ourselves, screwing things up so badly that a lifeguard is needed to make it right. No matter the circumstance, lifeguards always answer the call. Their job requires fitness, focus, awareness, recognition and clarity. Lifeguards also need quality gear that will perform when it matters most. Many lifeguards choose Swim2000 for all their apparel, gear and equipment needs. Swim2000 appreciates their support but we would also like to recognize every lifeguard for what they do. From the staff at Swim2000, and on behalf of everyone on your watch, we send our sincerest appreciation and gratitude to lifeguards everywhere. For everything you do, thank you. Be safe, enjoy the summer and have a great lifeguard season!
