Lifeguard Master Introduces a new and improved spine board with built in runners to aid in faster lifesaving. This is vital in a life saving issue as the runners allow the spine board to be picked up and moved very easily.
Just what are runners? When the spine board is laying flat on the ground, and the victim is laying on it, the board must be picked up easily by the handles. So the runners are under the spine board and they elevate the board from the ground so the fingers can go around the handles. This is while the board is laying flat on the ground. This allows the board to be picked up easily in an emergency situation, which you need and is a must. When a victim is on the spine board, time is of the essence. Runners allow the board to be picked up very fast with minimal to no strain on the emergency personal. Now days, built in runners are a must for spine boards.
These runners are built in. Built in, meaning no attachments and no replacements. The runners are built in and molding into the board. So it is all one piece, without attachments or assembly. And the runners will last though the lifetime of the board.

In an emergency, this spine board also covers all the other very important qualities. One such quality is the weight capacity. This spine board has a weight capacity of 600 pounds. This ensures the spine board will handle everyone, from the smallest to the biggest person out there. To be able to handle everyone is also vital in an emergency.
This spine board is also perfect for water rescue, as it may be used in a swimming pool or beach. This means you want the board to be buoyant, but not too buoyant. In case of a water emergency and the victim is in the water, the spine board must go under the victim easily. Imagine for a second that you have a victim in the water and you’re trying to put a spine board under him. While in the water, you want to strap the victim on the spine board. And imagine you have an incredibly buoyant spine board. And it takes a great effort to place the board slightly under the water and under the victim. You don’t want this. You want a board that will go under the water and under the victim easily. This board had such a capability.

This spine board is also maintenance free. This allows for the board to stay in the rain, sun or any weather condition without maintaining it or worrying about clean up. You want to be able to leave your board in the elements or anywhere because you want it close by and easily accessible in any given moment, just in case it is needed in an emergency. So this board is able to handle rain, sun, wind, salt water, and chlorine water. The coating of the material to be made so that none of these elements will seep into the board and your board is looking good and ready to be used even after exposure to these elements.
