Mississippi Lifeguards like other Lifeguards around the United States and the World are highly dedicated and devoted to the people they serve. Lifeguards are most often the First Responder on scene and the last to leave. A high quality First Aid Bag or Kit is essential to supporting a Lifeguard in their duty to help others. This Lifeguard First Aid Kit should be well stocked with exactly the items that a Lifeguard needs and not items that he or she doesn't need. It should be easily accessible. Lifeguards should also develop a system for replacing items as needed so that the First Aid items that Lifeguards use are always there when they need them.
Lifeguards and other Recreation and Aquatics Personnel are gathering together this week in Oxford, Mississippi for the Mississippi Recreation and Park Association (MRPA) Conference to learn about innovations and new technologies in their field. Some new innovations in Lifeguarding over the past few years, that are generating excitement among Lifeguards, are the LIFE™ Rescue Tube, Seal Quik™ Mask, and the ER7 Lifeguard Backboard.
