- Aug. 6, 2012 - LOS ANGELES --
Golden State Lifeguards has announced plans to introduce a new Las Vegas lifeguards division effective in 2013 to meet the rising demand for professional and experienced lifeguard/medics for the private events/motion picture industry. As is the company provides a higher level of service due to its use of dually certified lifeguard/EMT's and lifeguard/paramedics in the state of California.Most of its current staff are representing agencies such as LAFD, LACoFD, OCFA and Huntington Beach Lifeguards to name a few.
The company has great success working with hospitals and city/county EMS agencies in providing the type of service it specializes in. While all other companies in the Las Vegas metro area only offer basic trained lifeguards, many are just too young or inexperienced to handle trauma cases requiring a higher level of care. This is the key to a positive outcome rather than a tragic end.
The company will be recruiting Las Vegas lifeguards who have EMT or paramedic certifications/
licenses beginning in January 2013. Once the candidates have been screened, background checked and drug tested, the company will conduct its training class with all the new recruits. The new division will be in place and ready to go by spring 2013. Golden State Lifeguards will send FTO's to oversee and train new supervisors for the new division. The company will also be reaching out to casinos to offer independent lifeguard auditors to improve services by lifeguards other than Ellis & Associates auditors. The mission is to raise the bar and offer the most professional and seasoned lifeguard/medics in the region.
There are also plans to offer some of the toughest lifeguard training specifically designed by its senior staff incorporating elements from American Red Cross and Starguard. All new lifeguards will be certified as a Starguard (Starfish Aquatics Institute) and will have gotten training that is far more comprehensive than anything else being offered.
