Guard Roles

The first guard will need to do a quick assessment before starting the rescue process to determine the severity of the rescue. The signal they use will be based on which type of rescue is required (e.g. spinal, DNS) and on whether it is a minor or major. Based on their signal the remaining guards will respond accordingly.

During any rescue every guard has a specific role, and responsibilities, that they are accountable to. If they neglect to follow their protocol then they risk compromising the rescue, and can even put other guards at risk.

How the guards are assigned:

Guard #1: the guard that is closest to the victim or the guard that signals that they are about to perform a rescue.

Guard #2: the guard that #1 signalled to.

Guard #3: the guard that #2 signalled to.
