So you want to become a lifeguard?

lifeguard is paid to supervise the safety of individuals in and around water.  As the water can often be very dangerous, a lifeguard is also responsible for providing emergency assistance to those they are watching. Most are employed by municipalities who manage most of the local aquatic facilities as well as several private companies who operate waterparks. Not everyone is cracked up to be a lifeguard. Guarding can be both stressful and extremely dangerous. At any given moment a guard may be responsible for watching dozens of people in or around water. As if that isn’t difficult enough, lifeguards may have to deal with strong rip currents, inclement weather, or thousands of other situations.  A lifeguard must demonstrate proficiency in several areas to become good at the job. Since there are aquatic facilities all across the country the demand for lifeguards is high no matter where you live.  Whether you are looking for seasonal work or are looking to make a career out of lifeguarding, it is always an excellent time to become a lifeguard.
