Leicestershire Lifeguards is a voluntary unit established in 1985 to meet the need for qualified lifeguard cover to oversee open water lifesaving exams. The Unit is a member of the Royal Life Saving Society UK and one of over 100 units registered within the National Lifeguard Training Programme.
Years of hard work
In 1991 the Unit moved to Bosworth Water Park, on the B585 near Market Bosworth. Since the unit was formed we have provided over 100,000 patrol hours and dealt with over 10,000 incidents.
- 7% - were life threatening emergencies.
- 38% - related to major incidents, rescue and transfers to hospital.
- 55% - were minor incidents, water safety advice and first aid.
