The United States Lifesaving Association has calculated the chance that a person will drown while attending a beach protected by USLA-affiliated lifeguards at 1 in 18 million (.0000055%). This is based on the last ten years of reports from USLA-affiliated lifeguard agencies, comparing estimated beach attendance to the number of drownings in areas under lifeguard protection.

The California Surf Life Saving Association annually polls its chapters for the number of rescues, drownings, and other statistical information reported by lifeguard agencies. This is not a comprehensive list of all statistics generated by all beach lifeguard agencies, but the statistics of most major agencies are included here. Please see Resources below.

The CSLSA Statistics committee provided our membership with a Daily Lifeguard Patrol Log and an Annual Lifeguard Statistics forms to assist them in collecting their statistics. These forms provide agencies with a tool to better collect data in a standardized format. At the CSLSA Fall, 2008 Board of Directors meeting, the committee reported that they are monitoring the usage and welcome comments. See Forms below.
