Back Board Rescue Method Demonstrated Demonstrating the use of a back board at Buhr Park are city pool lifeguards (from left in the water) Tom Wilkins, Dave Baldwin, Waneta Boman and Tom Peck. Stephanie Mills is tied to the rescue board. According to Tom Mollet, head of the Red Cross Water Safety Program, Ann Arbor is one of the first cities in the state to use the back board method of rescue. The board is designed to immobilize victims with back or neck injuries during the rescue process and to eliminate any further injury which could occur by trying to lift the victim onto a stretcher or into an ambulance.

"The city's new pools have been a long time coming, and the weather has been a long time getting hot the way summer should, but it looks as if it's all coming together now. First pool to open was Buhr Park., shown in the pictures here, and if everything goes just right - equipment works, no leaks and no unplanned for happenings - the parks department will open the other two pools (Veteran's Park and Fuller Road) with a bang on the Fourth of July. Meanwhile city youngsters have been enjoying a "wet run" at Buhr- splashing in the water, sunbathing and card-playing on the spacious deck, diving off the high boards. So the rest of you water lovers get set for the next weekend. The lifeguards are ready to go, the water is fine. Come join us."
