      LIFEGUARD STANDARD OF CARE A lifeguard, by definition, has a legal duty to protect the safety of people in an assigned area. Lifeguards have a professional obligation to prevent potential accidents by enforcing the rules and regulations of an aquatic setting and to react to any emergencies that occur. To be a professional lifeguard, a person must have certain physical fitness, certification of lifeguard training, first aid, cardiopulmonary resuscitation and other requirements, which may be tailored to the specific needs of the facility. In addition to these requirements, however, lifeguards need certain personal characteristics, knowledge and skills to function effectively. Lifeguards must be caring, strong, quick to respond, confident, physically fit and intelligent persons with good interpersonal skills. Because of the hazardous duty of the lifeguard, some candidates with physical or mental conditions may be certified as lifeguards but may not be qualified for the job of a professional lifeguard. Lifeguards must have a high level of physical fitness at all times, including hearing, sight, speed, strength, endurance and flexibility, all of which are vital to a rescue. A professional lifeguard must be able to remain alert with no lapses in consciousness, be physically able to sit for extended periods, including in elevated chairs; communicate verbal including projecting the voice across large distances; be able to hear noises and sounds of distress even outside one's vision. Lifeguards must have emotional stability and make sound decisions that conform to facility policies when dealing with difficult decisions since the decisions of a lifeguard may affect the total facility staff and the lives of others. Lifeguards must have a positive attitude in order to be able to fully cooperate with other guards in a team effort and adhere to rules and regulations in a successful operation of a facility. Lifeguards must have the physical and mental conditions necessary to be able to properly and timely activate the EMS system and complete the EMS system in the case of an emergency.
