Whether you work at a pool or a beach, there are times where you need to project your voice over the crowd and the noise of crashing waves. From strong currents to other types of beach hazards, lifeguards need to ensure their voice messages containing critical information and potentially lifesaving directions are clearly heard and understood.
That’s because when it involves safety at the beach, communication in a few instances, is more important than anything else. For this reason, Fire Departments rely on a PA system to broadcast messages containing critical information to protect and save lives. A PA system provides instant voice communication for daily announcements and public notifications during emergency situations.
PA systems are used by the lifeguards of many beaches to warn those on the beach and in the water of possible danger helping to prevent the need for rescues and recoveries. After all, one of the most important injury-prevention strategies for lifeguards is communication. Keep in mind, not all PA systems are the same, which is why the lifeguards of Oceanside Harbor Beach turned to Shultz Audio Video for help.
Oceanside Harbor Beach is Oceanside’s largest beach. The area offers everything from volleyball and surfing to fishing and shopping. From deep-sea fishing to kayaking, the beach is a popular surfing spot, especially near the jetties. With 3.7 miles of beach to safeguard, the Oceanside Lifeguards who provide safety to the users of this coastline needed a PA system for general use as well as one that provided clear voice projection for their Junior Lifeguard Program.
