"We don't have this type of program. While it seems to be a good idea on the surface it opens a bunch of cans of worms as Steve and Elise have mentioned. The biggest red flag I have in my mind is the possible ethics violations. I'm not sure…"

Lifeguard Appreciation

We have a member that wants to recongize any lifeguard that makes a lifesaving save.  He wants to put a plague in the pool area and award the individuals with a cash gift.  We have 2 pools and wants to recongize only the guards in the lap pool.

"We test everyone on active victim and spinal. We have found that an LGI in our area is handing out LG certs like candy to kids that can swim. We bring them in to test them for employment and they don't have a clue. When asked how many hours…"
