San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 29, 2014
It is seven o’clock at night during the summer and people are enjoying their time on the beach and in the water on the shore of California. Things are going great until a lifeguard sitting on a tower watching beach patrons sees someone struggling in the water. The lifeguard grabs his rescue board and goes after the swimmer. The lifeguard is able to get the swimmer back safely to shore quickly and easily and performs CPR.
This kind of story happens every day and a rescue board can make or break the time a lifeguard is able to get a swimmer back to shore. Especially needed for the ocean due to high currents, Lifeguard Master, the popular lifeguard supply site, has recently launched their new line of rescue boards. For more information, please go to: http://www.lifeguardmaster.com/rescue-boards.
