What is a lifeguard chair called?

It can also be referred to as observation stations, guard chairs, or rescue chairs. These chairs are on a raised platform, with some built with a railing around them to provide the lifeguard with a 360-degree view of the area they are responsible for.

Why are lifeguard chairs so high?

The chairs at the beach always seem to be too high for comfort. But there's a good reason for that. Those chairs are designed to give lifeguards the best possible view of the water. And being high off the ground makes it easier to spot someone in trouble. It also gives lifeguards a better angle for throwing a rescue line or rescue tube from this height, making all the difference in an emergency situation.
