Scanning While Rotating: Short Video for Lifeguards


Rotations are a common time when we see aquatic events occur. In this video, we discuss how lifeguards can complete a proper rotation in order to make sure the water is clear, and all swimmers are safe and protected.

We encourage you to use this in your next staff meeting or send it out to your staff ahead of their next shift. We have also included 2-3 discussion questions below to facilitate conversation about how to apply the topic to guards’ everyday work.

Discussion Questions 

  • What gaps have you seen take place during rotations at your organization?
  • After watching this video, what is one learning you can take and apply to your next rotation?
  • How can you work with other lifeguards to build stronger communication during rotations?
