A person can drown in minutes, before traditional first responders can arrive. But if the 911 alert is also simultaneously sent directly to off-duty certified lifeguards on their smartphones who may be around the corner at the time, tragedy can be averted. Hamptons Emergency Lifeguard Partnership (HELP) has created a protocol and network to connect guards to nearby drownings. Our petition seeks to press local officials to partner with HELP to adopt this protocol so that families dont have to lose a loved one.
