    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    Site-specific training for lifeguards should include facility policies and procedures, emergency action plans, and rescues with facility-specific equipment. This is because lifeguards need to be familiar with the specific rules and regulations of the facility they are working at, as well as the proper procedures to follow in case of emergencies.

Therefore, all of the options mentioned are important components of site-specific training for lifeguards.

      Mission statement

    Explanation
    The first section of a lifeguard manual should include the emergency action plan. This is because the emergency action plan is crucial for lifeguards to know and understand in order to effectively respond to any emergencies or incidents that may occur while on duty. It outlines the necessary steps and procedures to follow in various emergency situations, such as drowning, spinal injuries, or cardiac arrest. Including the emergency action plan in the first section of the manual ensures that lifeguards have immediate access to this vital information and can quickly respond to emergencies to ensure the safety of swimmers.

      Begin to write your record of what happened.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Before providing care for a conscious injured or ill victim, it is important to obtain the victim's consent. This ensures that the victim is aware of the care being provided and gives their permission for it. Obtaining consent is a crucial step in respecting the victim's autonomy and ensuring that they are comfortable with the care being provided. It also helps establish trust and rapport between the rescuer and the victim, creating a more positive and effective caregiving environment.

    • A.

      The risk of legal action as a result of sharing information about the victim with bystanders and local media.

    • B.

      The need to legally document what was seen, heard and done at the scene.

    • D.

      The need to obtain consent before providing care.

    Correct Answer
    B. The risk of legal action as long as they act in good faith, within the scope of their training and are not negligent.
    Explanation
    Good Samaritan laws are designed to protect professional rescuers from the risk of legal action as long as they act in good faith, within the scope of their training, and are not negligent. These laws encourage individuals to provide assistance in emergency situations without fear of being sued for any unintentional harm caused during the rescue. By providing this protection, the laws aim to promote prompt and necessary aid to those in need without hesitation or concern for potential legal consequences.

  • 8. 

    If a lifeguard in-service training is not documented, it basically did not take place.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If a lifeguard in-service training is not documented, it basically did not take place. This statement implies that documentation is necessary to validate the occurrence of the training. Without proper documentation, there is no evidence or record of the training happening, making it difficult to prove that it actually took place. Therefore, the statement suggests that if there is no documentation, the training is considered non-existent.
