Drowning is preventable, yet remains the second leading cause of accidental death among children. Statistics show that drowning occurs most frequently—a whopping 80% of the time—on private property. Swimming ability is just one of many layers of protection that must be present to prevent drowning. Backyard Lifeguards brings important aquatic industry education, services, and equipment to consumers in their own environment. The goal is to motivate safety-conscious choices and promote steps necessary to eliminate water accidents.
Backyard Lifeguards is the only company in St. Louis providing consistent and high-quality American Red Cross water safety training and lifeguard services to home and hotel pools and to open-water sites that host adventure races, triathlons, and swimming competitions.
