Good Guard Bad Guard

It’s July and hot outside and you head to the neighborhood pool for the day.  The kids want to swim and you just want to be doing nothing for awhile.  Everyone files through the gate as you scan for an open lounge chair and your friends.  The kids have sunscreen on, you have your book, and yes – Mike is the lifeguard on duty.  You like Mike.  He’s a good kid and always nice to yours…See More

"Sorry - resuscitation can occur after aspiration.  You are saying that until they aspirate - drowning hasn't occurred yet.  Correct?"

Mario Vittone commented on Tom Griffiths's blog post Lap Swimming Losses
"Yes - Tom.  I get that part. As a matter a definition then - drowning only fully happens if you die from it.  Yes?  Again - it's a semantic issue about when we apply the term.  So if a child "struggles on the surface…"

Mario Vittone commented on Tom Griffiths's blog post When it comes to your EAP - Don't Blow it!
"I agree - an emergency should be communicated with it's own distinct sound, leaving no question about the communication.  In the Coast Guard, nothing sounded like the "SAR Alarm" - you knew if you heard it, you were headed to the…"

Mario Vittone replied to Gary Thill's discussion Should 14 El Monte, Calif. Lifeguards have been fired for making this video?
"I saw that too. As is always the case, the organization who wants to not be embarrassed by a social post - fire the people who made, draw way more attention to the thing than it would EVER have gotten otherwise, and really embarrass themselves. "
