USLA Safety Tip of the Week: Sharks!

“With all the drama about sharks of late, it’s a good time to remember that the USLA has a position statement on appropriate responses to shark incidents by lifeguard agencies. You can review it in the Lifeguard Library at usla.org or by visiting usla.org/sharkbiteposition. And remember, in 2014 there were no shark related fatalities in the US, but over 85,000 rescues from drowning by American lifeguards.”

Remember to stay safe this summer!
