For the first time ever, two videos, "Disappearing Dummies: Why Lifeguards Can't See" and the "Five Minute Scanning Strategy," are combined conveniently on one DVD. World-renowned aquatic safety expert Dr. Tom Griffiths explains the challenges caused by visual body blindness and introduces new techniques to stay more alert and focused while lifeguarding.

Lifeguards will stay more awake and more alert by employing this revolutionary strategy. This technique has been proven so effective that it is now a requirement for all 35,000 Ellis
