With many states and municipalities planning to reopen their facilities, economies, and businesses, now is the time to prepare your aquatic facilities with the essential equipment and supplies that you will need to open safely for your staff and patrons. Since the aquatic season is nearly upon us and due to the shutdown, most agencies have not made their essential purposes there is likely to be a rush on the most needed items. It would be best practice for aquatic facilities to buy now and beat the rush.

Lifeguards and Aquatics Leaders at the Association of Aquatic Professionals (AOAP) National Annual Conference that took place in Frisco, Texas had the first look at the new innovative Patent Pending Lifeguard Training Manikin - Silhouette.
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.

Are you wondering how the ER7 Backboard and the CJ6 Backboard stack up against each other? eLifeguard.com® sells both backboards but is discontinuing sales of the CJ6. In our side by side testing and review, we found that the ER7 has smoother and tighter constructed seams. The seems at the parting line of the CJ6 are more porous, potentially allowing for hazardous fluid absorption. The ER7 Strap System is color coded for ease of use. The CJ6 Head Bed has more parts which make it susceptible to breakage, which we have seen from time to time during years of selling the product. The Head Immobilizer on the ER7 is made from a much more durable plastic and has replaceable vinyl dipped foam blocks that will not absorb fluids unlike the CJ6 that has porous permanently attached foam blocks. The ER7 can be seen throughout the pages of the new American Red Cross Lifeguard Training Manual and is used by aquatics and lifesaving agencies worldwide.
