"Thanks for sharing this.  I am the one who put it together and it has been a great success.  Please let me or my organization (Lifeguards Without Borders) know if there is anything else we can do for the Aquatics International community.…"

"At the risk of repeating what has already been said, I have some concerns about what you've suggested. We want to be encouraging guards to NOT perform rescues, but to ensure rescues never need happen through preventative and proactive life…"

Henry commented on Tom Griffiths's blog post Role Reversal at Swimming Pools
"Interesting post. I’ve worked predominantly in surf settings, but also in aquatic facilities. And I think you’re right, there’s often less expectancy among pool lifeguards that they will be called on to perform a rescue or even…"

Henry replied to Michelle Koppin's discussion Parents Making the Rescue, not Lifeguard
"Joe makes a good point. It's important to be seen to be acting. Even if a lifeguard knows a member of the public or parent will reach a swimmer in distress before them, and even if they realise that entering the pool may not expedite the…"

Henry replied to Michelle Koppin's discussion Parents Making the Rescue, not Lifeguard
"I don't know the specifics of the situation you mention, so it's difficult to comment - however, it seems you've reviewed the situation and determined the lifeguard wasn't negligent. This is a common issue - both in…"

Excellent training video for lifeguards on drowning treatment

I recently came across this new video on the drowning process, as well as it's treatment (produced by the group Lifeguards Without Borders). I have to say, it's one of the best and most accessible I've seen. Particularly as it's tailored specifically for the life guarding community.I played it to my lifeguards at our last all-staff meeting, and they all said the same thing ( a few even asked for the URL so they could watch it again at home).I very much recommend it for anyone involved in…See More

"Agree with you 100% on this (that's what the video above is more or less about also). I had an instructor many years ago who told me something that has always stayed with me - "You'll never rise to the occasion, only to the level of…"

Henry replied to Jim Wheeler's discussion Body Contact Rescues
"I like the mantra "If they grab you just swim down". I'm all for evidence-based approached to lifeguarding (we need more of it) but sometimes it seems we do a lot of work to forget what we already know."

"What's the law around fencing pools in the US? In Australia and New Zealand (the countries where I've worked) it's a legal requirement that all swimming pools have a continuous safety barrier maintained by the pool owner that…"

Henry replied to Jim Wheeler's discussion Body Contact Rescues
"Agreed Bob. As mentioned above, I've been grabbed by a few patients while I didn't have a buoyancy aid on me. And I watched same thing happen to other lifeguards. And I've not once seen a person perform an escape…"
