Canadian Lifeguard Rescue Reporting System

The University of North Carolina at Charlotte’s Department of Kinesiology is hosting a reporting system to gather information about how lifeguards respond to all types of water-related incidents on the job. The goal is to help training agencies learn more about what actually is taking place when lifeguards are called upon to respond to an emergency, such as conditions at the time of the rescue, how the lifeguard identified the emergency and the type of equipment used in the rescue.

Presented in a multiple-choice format, the survey is anonymous. The survey will be available until further notice.

The Canadian Red Cross encourages lifeguards who have responded to an aquatic emergency to complete this survey as soon after the incident as possible. This information can have an impact on how lifeguards are trained in the future.
