Understanding Lifeguard Equipment

Friday, May 29th, 2015


The Water Safety Products online store for lifeguards offers a wide variety of lifeguard gear to choose from, making it a one-stop shop for all of your lifeguard needs. This list should give you an idea of what you can find in our lifeguard equipment category.

Whistles: Lifeguard whistles are the primary form of communication between lifeguards and guests making them a must have for any lifeguard Uniform. Here at WSP we only offer trusted brands of whistles such as Fox 40 and STORM. All of our whistles are also Pea-less making it possible to use them even if they are wet!

Lanyards: Lifeguard lanyards can be used for a number of things. Most often, they are used to hold a lifeguard’s whistle and/ or name tag. We offer 2 styles: breakaway, and non-breakaway. Breakaway lanyards disengage if pulled, making them the safest option. However, you can also choose non-breakaway lanyards such as the 400M if you need a lower price lifeguard whistle lanyard.

Hip Packs, Back Packs, & Bags: Use any of our Hip Packs, Back Packs, & Bags to store your equipment and supplies. The most popular lifeguard bag is the lifeguard fanny pack offering quick and easy access to first aid supplies.

Sun Protection Products: This category includes items used to protect your skin from the sun. This includes trusted brands of lifeguard sunscreen such as ocean potion sunscreen and rocky mountain sunscreen as well as sun protective clothing. As a tip we would suggest buying your sunscreen in gallons 237G with a wall bracket 104B decreasing loss and wastage of sunscreen.

Rescue Breathing Masks/ Barrier: This category includes all items used for protection while performing CPR or rescue breathing. We offer a variety FDA approved rescue breathing masks and CPR masks such as the BigEasy and Laerdal CPR masks as well as simple solutions such as microshields.

Gloves and Accessories: Lifeguards use gloves frequently when administering first aid. Protect yourself and patrons with lifeguard gloves such as latex and nitrile gloves.

Waterproof Bags: water-resistant bags are used to protect mobile devices, phones, tablets, lifeguard radios, and small personal items. We offer the brand Drypak, known for high quality waterproof phone bags and lifeguard radio bags.

Water Bottles & Towels: Staying hydrated is vital to keep lifeguard vigilant and safe. There are a number of styles and price points to choose from. You can also find lifeguard towels in this category.

Polarized Sun Glasses: Most lifeguards choose polarized sunglasses. Polarized lifeguard sunglasses reduce 99.9% of glare, increasing the user’s ability to see into the water. Polarized sunglasses are also the healthiest type of lens for your eyes.
