After our campaign to attract people from differing walks of life to lifeguarding garnered national media attention, we thought it was high-time we drew on our existing ranks of lifeguards out there, with their own unique stories to tell.

Lifesavers would like to hear from you if there is a very unique aspect to your role as a lifeguard.

For example, do you work through a tenet of your faith, such as a period of fasting? Maybe you’re the one lifeguard who always volunteers for the 5am start? Do you have a specific addition to your uniform? Or maybe you lifeguard the training sessions for our existing and future Olympians?
