The interviewer would like to see how full your understanding is when it comes to preparing for your shift as a lifeguard. The way you respond will also be an indicator, for the hiring authority, on how much training you have received, and how much more you may need, should you be hired. Because this is an open-ended question, be aware of keeping your response straightforward.
"As per my lifeguard training, the equipment that I would be sure to have are a life buoy to throw into the pool should someone get into trouble, a whistle to draw attention to a situation, a walkie-talk to contact colleagues in an emergency, a waterproof watch, and a first aid kit."
"In my current role, I always have with me a first aid kit, a life vest, a floatation device, and an emergency phone. In my lifeguard pack, I carry a whistle, water bottle, and a rope. Is there anything else you would require me to carry, in this role?"
"The essentials items I have to carry before my shift begins are a storm whistle, rescue tube, first aid kit, CPR mask, walkie talkie, and water bottle."
Your response is bang on! Well done.
