For safety, our lifeguards participate in ongoing lifeguard training. Part of this training includes the use of people and life-like mannequins for simulation drills during operational hours. The lifeguards are trained to respond as if it were an actual emergency.

Should you see a mannequin in the pool, please do not become alarmed or call attention to it. If you have any questions regarding this procedure, please consult a member of our management team.
