Lifeguard Positions Still Available
While the county has reached its goal of lifeguards for the season, we continue to recruit and hire lifeguard positions. Candidates must be at least 15 years old and have current lifeguard, first aid and CPR certifications. Lifeguard candidates must also successfully pass an aquatics test. Prior to taking the aquatics test, all applicants must present a doctor’s certification form, employment application and permission to investigate form. No aquatics test will be given without the required documentation.
