Lifeguards Still Needed in Worcester

Monday, July 09, 2012

 

Even though city beaches and pools have been open for several weeks, the city of Worcester is still looking to hire two or three more lifeguards to complete its staff.

Assistant Aquatics Director William Soucy said that all four of the city’s swimming areas have been adequately staffed at all times, and that the additional lifeguards are needed to allow for flexibility in scheduling.

“We’ve been fully staffed at all locations at all times,” Soucy said. “This is so we can schedule days off for people.”

Currently, there are 31 lifeguards who watch over Coes Pond, Indian Lake, Bell Pond and the Crompton Pool. Swimming hours are noon to 6:15 pm daily. Soucy said lifeguards work from 11:30 until 7:15 pm. New hires can expect to work 36 ¼ hours each week.

“We were a little short at the beginning,” Soucy said. “But we haven’t had any problems with adequate staffing.”

To be hired as a lifeguard, Soucy said individuals need to be certified as a lifeguard, with waterfront certification preferred. Other requirements include a CPR and First Aid certification, a recent physical or certification from a physician that the applicant is able to work without restrictions and a work permit, if necessary.

Individuals interested in the positions should apply in person at the Parks Division, 50 Skyline Drive, Worcester. Two forms of identification, including a picture ID are needed.
