How many of you go for a dip in a beautiful waterfall after a long day of hiking? Or, jump in the water after a day of paddling? Are you trained as a wilderness lifeguard? Is someone in your group trained? AEE, ACA and WEA all have standards for waterfront safety and swimming activities in the backcountry. However, the industry does not have a common agreement on a certification program for a “wilderness lifeguard”. What do you think? Do we need one? Would this be the next WFR? I really like the program that Landmark has in place.
