You supervise the safety and rescues of swimmers in the pool, lake, ocean—every body of water. You yourself are a strong swimmer and trained in CPR and first aid. When accidents happen near water, you’re the first line of emergency response. You’re a lifeguard.
Lifeguards sport a uniform, typically red, to alert their patrons of their position. You need to stand out so people know who to turn to if something happens. Aside from the sunscreened nose and stand-out suits, lifeguards need unhindered vision. Squinting at the water, even with sunglasses, damages your ability to see and respond effectively. You need a hat specifically made for lifeguards and the duties they perform. Choose a style that best fits your job from brands like Peter Grimm and TYR.
