Lifeguards needed for this summer

The City of Worcester Parks Division needs lifeguards for city beaches (Coes Pond, Bell Pond, Indian Lake) and the Crompton Park pool.

You need to be at least 16 years old, certified in CPR, First Aid, and Lifeguarding, and pass the swimming test.

I believe pay will be between $10.50 and $11 an hour.

If you are interested, please call the Parks main line at 508-799-1190.  If you know people who might be interested, PLEASE pass this information on to them.

If you’re interested but do not have all the certifications, that’s ok.  Please call Parks (508-799-1190) and let them know that you are interested but would like information on attending certification classes.  They should have the information about local classes and you should have enough time to get certified before the summer.  (And if Parks doesn’t have information about classes, email me and I’ll forward you the information.)
