Dana F replied to Jolynn Buettell's discussion Lifeguard chair position
"Some other things you might want to consider are if the guard can see everyone entering the pool area, where do the majority of incidents occur, and how crowded the deck may be at different times or events. I guarded in a facility with the main door…"

Mark Garneau replied to Jolynn Buettell's discussion Lifeguard chair position
"Each pool is so unique with so many conditions that must be evaluated: glare, deck entrance, drafts, access to rescue equipment . . . Our stands are in the corners of a 3 sectioned pool.  This conversation is brought up at a HG meetings…"

Jolynn Buettell replied to Jolynn Buettell's discussion Lifeguard chair position
"Thanks for your input,I like the corners because I don't have to look both ways,because if I look one way I feel like I have a blind spot the other way and every thing is in front of me,but you are right about  being able to get to the…"

Nick Bacon replied to Jolynn Buettell's discussion Lifeguard chair position
"We've done both and they both had distinct advantages and disadvantages but for us most of those stemmed from the high amount of glare our giant windows and skylights create.  We re-evaluate our Guard stand positions at least once a year.…"

Lisa Phillips replied to Jolynn Buettell's discussion Audits
"Ron, Your first two cons are eliminated by placing another guard on that zone as the audit begins. As for your third con, the risk to injury is very minimal, and rarely happens, and is no greater than the risk to injury just by participating in open…"

Lisa Phillips replied to Jolynn Buettell's discussion Audits
"I believe live audits are the most effective way of offering a guard a "real life scenario" and all the potential positives and negatives that can occur. If you are not auditing during open swim then you have no bystanders in the way,…"
