  1. Lifeguards Upgrade YMCA Rescue Tubes!

    Upgrade Your Rescue Tubes!

    YMCA's all across the United States and around the World are upgrading their old vinyl YMCA rescue tubes (Photo Above) to the revolutionary new LIFE™ Rescue Tubes! The old vinyl coated "Noodle" tubes are notorious for cracking and splitting and potentially posing a danger to Lifeguards and victims. When splitting, the old lifeguard tubes may not function properly for rescue and could potentially pose a health risk due to exposed foam absorption of blood born pathogens.

    The LIFE™ Rescue Tube is the #1 selling rescue tube in the World and also the #1 selling rescue tube to YMCA aquatics facilities and growing everyday.

    Recently sighted in Hawaii, Ben Affleck was training for the new NETFLIX Film TRIPLE FRONTIER. Affleck was using an eLifeguard.com® Lifeguard Rescue Tube. The Rescue Tube that he was using was one of the old vinyl coated foam models which was replaced several years ago by the revolutionary new LIFE™ Rescue Tube. Way to go Ben! Keep up the training and good luck with TRIPLE FRONTIER!

    Affleck discussed the above photo and NETFLIX film on The Ellen Show. Click here to watch the video clip.

  3. Training Manikin Adapted For StarGuard Lifeguards!

    Lifeguards and Water Safety Pros at the Association of Aquatic Professionals (AOAP) Conference, that took place in Frisco, Texas earlier this year, who operate their Aquatics facilities using StarGuard Lifeguard Certification asked eLifeguard.com® to create a special version of the Training Manikin. The Training Manikin - Silhouette II was born!

    Conference attendees were impressed with the innovative use of the Dive Brick inserted into the center of the Manikin. The use of the Brick allows the Manikin to sink to the bottom of the pool / lake / ocean and serve as a Passive Doll / Silhouette. The unique design of this Manikin, unlike that of Dolls, allows the Lifeguard to rescue the device and bring it to the surface using various standard lifesaving rescue maneuvers. Once at the surface the Manikin (Victim) can be grasped and brought to safety.

    When the Dive Brick is removed, the Lifeguard Training Manikin - Silhouette floats at the water's surface, ideal for rescues at or near the surface of the water.

    The innovative design of the Training Manikin - Silhouette II, as compared with the Training Manikin - Silhouette, which was designed with American Red Cross and YMCA Lifesaving Training in mind, allows the Manikin to be used in training for maneuvers such as the Leg-Wrap Rescue and the Extended Leg-Wrap Rescue which are unique to StarGuard Lifeguard certification.

    Utah Lifeguards, Aquatics, and Recreation Professionals met this week for the annual conference of the Utah Recreation & Parks Association (URPA) in St. George, Utah. In addition to being a time to network and catch up with friends and colleagues, this was an opportunity for those involved in the field of Aquatics to discuss new Lifesaving technologies and innovations in the Lifeguard industry. Among those in attendance were Lifeguards certified with the American Red Cross, StarGuard, and YMCA.

    Innovations that have been making waves in Aquatics in recent years include the LIFE™ Rescue Tube, which is now the #1 selling rescue tube in the world; the Seal Quik™ Mask, which is the Lifeguard industry standard seal mask (based on lifesaving certification adoption); and the new Lifesaving Training Manikin - Silhouette, which debuted at the recent conference of the Association of Aquatic Professionals.

    Other Lifeguard industry standard facility items (pictured above) include the red Everondack® LG 505 Lifeguard Chair, Solarlyte™ Lifeguard Umbrella, Lifeguard Board Shorts, and the Lifeguard T-Shirt.


  5. Lifeguards Plead Rescue Tube Insanity!

    Join The Rescue Tube Revolution!

    "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result", so they say. Using an old style vinyl coated rescue tubes that were invented half a century ago would fall into the insanity category, you might say. Lifesaving and lifeguard rescue tube technology made a major leap forward in 2015 with the invention of the industry changing LIFE™ Rescue Tube. The LIFE Rescue Tube is now the #1 selling rescue tube in the world and is not letting up any time soon. With recent adoption among various lifesaving certification agencies around the world, the LIFE Tube is here to stay and now the rescue tube of choice among lifesavers worldwide.

    What lifeguard trainers & lifeguards are saying:

    "Just received the new Rescue Buoy - needless to say, I’m very impressed with the design, manufacture, and durability of this product. We will attempt to use it during tomorrow’s Ice Rescue Technician course, and am very much looking forward to using it during our spring Water Rescue, Swiftwater Rescue, and Water Rescue Train-the-Trainer Programs"

    "Thanx for posting more videos of new tubes. Our Instructors are very impressed and excited about them. They are showing your videos in class this week."
