Your Importance as a lifeguard

Lifeguards play a vital role in keeping pool patrons safe. They are trained to spot potential hazards and provide assistance in case of an emergency.

Lifeguard Expectations

As a pool lifeguard, you will be qualified to handle any situation that may arise. Lifeguard rescues may not be common at a well supervised facility, but we regularly conduct drills and practice our rescue techniques so that we are always prepared. In addition, we are constantly monitoring the weather conditions and the water chemistry. We want everyone to enjoy their time at the pool area, but we rely on our lifeguards to do everything they can to ensure water safety.
