Vigilance Voice: Short Video for Lifeguards


Vigilance voice is a technique that lifeguards can use to remain vigilant and to verify what they are seeing in the water. In this video, we discuss how lifeguards can implement and practice this technique the next time they are on scanning duty.

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.
