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.
