57% OF POOL DROWNING FATALITIES INVOLVING CHILDREN AGES 5-14 OCCUR IN PUBLIC/ COMMERCIAL POOLS.
- CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFEY COMMISSION
If you run a facility that offers aquatics, then you already know it's your greatest area of risk. Despite best protocols and intentions, drowning events still happen on a surprisingly regular basis.
In fact, at least 20% of all drowning fatalities occur with guards present.*
WAVE is the first truly reliable, affordable, and easy to deploy solution that dramatically reduces the risk of drowning.
* American Camping Association. Some sources indicate a much higher rate.
A WONDERFUL ADDITION TO OUR LIFEGUARD STAFF SURVEILLANCE. OUR FAMILIES FEEL EVEN MORE SAFER... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

"THIS WOULD HAVE MADE ALL THE DIFFERENCE."

Your facility's pool might be crystal clear, but being able to see swimmers is not always the same as being able to determine when one might be at risk.
WAVE detects that critical moment in time when a swimmer might be in danger and immediately alerts your aquatics team so they can intervene if needed– before the event can escalate.
A GAME CHANGER... HAS ALLOWED OUR ORGANIZATION TO BE A LEADER IN SAFETY.
