What We Do
State Park lifeguards conduct surveillance of certain designated swimming areas, administer first aid and emergency care as needed, and perform beach-related maintenance work.
In general, we are on duty daily from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. Our typical work week is 40 hours, including weekends and holidays from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
We are certified in American Red Cross lifeguarding with waterfront skills. We practice our skills throughout the summer by doing in-service training which includes both physical conditioning and technical skills review so we are always performing at our best.
Come Join Us:
