VERO BEACH — The Vero Beach Lifeguard Association donated three automatic blood pressure and pulse monitors to the Vero
Beach recreation department for use in their lifeguard towers.
VBLA board members Dr. Tim McNamee, a retired physician and Scot Caviness, a local business
owner announced the donation of the state-of-the-art medical equipment during Tuesday’s city council
“These devices allow lifeguards to quickly and accurately measure various vital signs on victims during
emergencies when there is a lot of noise from the wind, water and crowds”, announced Dr. McNamee.
Lifeguard Training Officer Kris Bottger acknowledged the donation and added, “The equipment will free up the
guards to perform other important procedures during emergencies”.
To date, The Vero Beach Lifeguard Association has donated over $10,000 in equipment to City of Vero Beach
