    I did not know you had to be re-certified as a lifeguard. It is a good practice for them to do so. That allows you to be retrained on the basic information and to receive any additional safety skills since your last certification. People like me who love the water but cannot swim are definitely appreciative of lifeguards. I love knowing that if an emergency should arise there is someone who can help save mine or my child’s life.

    I am a Red Cross certified Open Water lifeguard. I live on the beach and we have rip tides and undertows that catch people off guard and pull them away from shore very quickly. We have at least 2 drowning deaths a year. The city won’t budget to hire lifeguards, some of us that do sales pay for our own training and certification but since we aren’t paid for it and have to make sales of watersport equipment and chairs we can’t always watch the water.
