Use of this tag is now discouraged. It is suggested to use the emergency=lifeguard + lifeguard=tower scheme instead.

Lifeguard towers are used to watch and supervise swimmers in order to prevent drownings and other dangers. Lifeguards scan for trouble from the structures, which vary from beach bungalows by the ocean to poolside towers. Lifeguard towers are also used to spot sharks and other threats.
