Want to help the community, train in CPR and first-aid, work outdoors and earn money?
Park lifeguards plays a critical role in the operation of 54 outdoor pools and 7 beaches situated on the Atlantic Ocean and Long Island Sound. By recruiting qualified people the City is able to open more beaches to the public and offer more programming at pools.
The training program is FREE, and those who successfully complete the course and start work will be paid for time spent training. The qualifying test is available at centers citywide and the only requirements are that applicants must be able to swim 50 yards in 35 second, have eyesight no worse than 20/30 in on eye and 20/40 in the other and be 16 years of age by June/July of summer 2010. First-year lifeguards earn at least $13.50 an hour and work 6 days a week.
