Re: Lock'n Up the Disney Pools come November
Lifeguards are expensive. These are Ellis certified. It takes a week to certify each CM, they have to have 4 hours of first aid, CPR and emergency training each month to keep their certification current. Each lifeguard needs to be routated every 20 minutes and then off stand each hour for 20 minutes. Ellis requires pool 'zone' certification of each and every pool and during different times of day for blindspots and glare. This is the very specific area a lifeguard scans the water. That is why they don't downsize the staff on duty, they must have all zones covered.

I spy 4 guards in this section of the Poly. (likely a shift change for head guard/manager of crew, that two are walking) I know Ellis requires my DD waterpark to have a guard at top of slide and one posted on stand near bottom of slide when open.
Some people are like Slinkies.
They aren't really good for anything,
but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.
