We do not mandate any employee or affiliate of Golden State Lifeguards to obtain a COVID 19 vaccine and subsequent boosters as per company policy. We will not comply with any production company request to have any employee or affiliate to be vaccinated prior to start date of production. 

Golden State Lifeguards offers the most professional and seasoned non-union film production pool & beach safety personnel in all of Southern California. For years we have had the privilege of working on some fantastic projects with the most dynamic crews. With 17 years in the industry, we are the most trusted source for water safety experts!

When it comes to pool, beach or boat safety personnel, you can’t just hire anyone. You need to hire a company that understands the inner workings of filming and what is required to function on the set of a production (land or water). You also need a company that can evaluate your needs and ensure you have the right lifeguard(s) on set. Our staff are well versed and experienced with on-set protocols and etiquette. We have established a great relationship with the various Southern California fire agencies, lifeguard agencies and FSO’s in the field that oversee safety. They know we can be trusted to look at every angle when it comes to beach safety on set. No detail is overlooked!

We provide pool lifeguards, beach lifeguards and yacht charter lifeguards for filming. Many of our lifeguards concurrently work with Los Angeles County Lifeguards and State Lifeguards. This is what makes us unique!

If in doubt as to your specific needs, call our office to speak to a production coordinator who will guide you on what is needed for your particular project. We will walk you through from the first call to completion of project.

*Please note that a lifeguard can’t double as a set medic during water filming. An additional set medic is required for filming.
