Since January 2015, Golden State Lifeguards has offered ocean/beach rescue services as part of its evolution in the Southern California region. With so few other companies offering open water lifeguards for private beaches or filming on beaches, it was time that this need was fulfilled. Unlike our pool lifeguard competitors, ocean/beach lifeguard operations is not an area that is easy to get into or desired due to the risks associated with it. This is an area that is specialized and requires an experienced staff to run operations. Don’t be fooled by other providers as there is only two private providers in Southern California that provide ocean/beach rescue services, we are one of them!
“POOL LIFEGUARDS ARE NOT BEACH/OCEAN LIFEGUARDS!
Our ocean/beach operations is run similarly to that of any municipal agency such as Los Angeles County Lifeguards, Los Angeles City Lifeguards or even State of California lifeguard division. We must abide by all guidelines established by the governing bodies responsible for certifying agencies and advanced lifeguard agencies.
Many of our lifeguards are dually certified Lifeguard/EMT’s and Lifeguard/Paramedics. We operate at the BLS level (basic lifesaving) and are trained to provide medical care on scene of any emergency until fire units, lifeguard units or law enforcement arrives on scene. Our beach lifeguards are fully uniformed and equipped according to company policies and SOP’s.
We provide lifeguards for:
- Private Beach Parties & Events
- Productions (Beach/Ocean)
- Private Beach Clubs/Resorts
Golden State Lifeguards will be applying to be an authorized Los Angeles County AED provider agency in the spring of 2018. As such we will utilize our medical director to oversee training and to make sure that the level of care is given in accordance with all state and federal agencies.
We also offer lifeguard/medics for boat charters and dive charters along the Southern California coast. While many think that charters are harmless, anything can happen such as a dive injury, animal attack or someone falling overboard. It makes sense to have an on board rescue swimmer/lifeguard to initiate a rescue or to render emergency medical care to an injured passenger or diver.
