Rescue Cans


Lifeguards are in charge of safety - and they need every bit of help to make sure everyone is safe and sound on the water! A lifeguard rescue can and ring bouys are an essential item that can prevent something terrible from happening. By using them, a lifeguard can float and help people in trouble do the same.


Small can, big help


The Burnside rescue can may seem too small to help - but carrying one around can make a big difference when someone needs help. A rescue can will help the average person stay afloat, no matter how much of a size difference there is between them.


Rescuing made easy


Having to rescue someone on the water is a tough and tense moment. At SwimOutlet, we want you to have every tool at your disposal to make that rescue happen. We have more than one rescue can for sale because of that.


The classic option to help people


We have the Baywatch rescue we all know and love in our store for you to buy today! Even though it won't help you run in slow motion, you can use it to help others stay safe on the water - and bring them back to the shore when they can't do it on their own. That'll make you a superstar in real life!

How do you use a rescue can?

Using a rescue can is very easy! All you have to do is get a hold of it and use it to swim as close to the victim as you can. After that, you hand the rescue can to whoever is having trouble on the water. When that happens, you need to help that person reach the shore as soon as possible.
When reaching someone on the water is not an option, you can throw the rescue can close to them and pull them to safety.

What are lifeguard rescue tubes made of?

More often than not, manufacturers make lifeguard rescue tubes out of soft PVC and coat them in vinyl. Both these materials help the rescue tube become resistant and buoyant. You need rescue cans to be buoyant to help people stay afloat, and you need them to be resistant so people don't break them during a rescue.

What does a rescue tube do?

A rescue tube helps both rescuer and victim stay afloat. That way, the rescuer can concentrate his or her efforts on helping whoever is in trouble.
A rescue tube also helps people identify lifeguards who are carrying them - and while that may seem trivial, it's always better to quickly recognize lifeguards during a crisis.

Why is it called a rescue can?

Rescue cans have that name because lifeguards use them to rescue people! If it sounds very straightforward, it's because it is. A rescue can is an essential item in the life of a lifeguard. It helps the rescuer save a victim from having trouble (or worse) on the water. You will also find rescue can under other names, such as torpedo buoy, rescue buoy, or rescue tube.
