The Wayne Lifeguard was a high floor type-C school bus offered on a variety of chassis.

This school bus design used Wayne's huge roll-forming presses to make single steel pieces which extended the entire length of the bus body. The concept was that by reducing the number of joints, the number of places where the body could be anticipated to separate in a catastrophic impact was reduced in a like amount. The "Lifeguard" design reduced overall body weight, the number of fasteners used, and man-hours required for assembly.

After 1992, the Lifeguard model production continued under Wayne Wheeled Vehicles until 1995.
