Law Enforcement Against Prohibition
Drugs are bad, prohibition is worse
re: potential lawsuits
Even without a potential 4 yr old drowning in his area... if someone runs up and says, "There's a guy drowning down there (outside your area) that needs help!", and he just sits there, and the guy does die, he and/or the company could still be sued. The sign labeling the distinction would possibly be viewed as arbitrary. The beach/water, as literal entities, know no boundaries (in that area). It will be portrayed by the plaintiffs that there was a lifeguard on duty at the body of water and that lifeguard refused to do their lifeguarding.
One can be sued for ANYTHING. The plaintiff does not have to be legally correct. They may lose, but cases like this are emotional, and juries love emotion, so you never know. More likely, a settlement would be reached before it even got that far. Either way, the company (and/or the company's insurance company) is paying out money... for defense and/or settlement.
As has been mentioned: A no-win situation.

If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
His contract probably has something like...
Section C: You are not a 911 emergency responder. Behaving as such around town is end of job.
