Lifeguards are responsible for ensuring the safety of the facility patrons by preventing and responding to emergencies and safety issues.
Lifeguards are expert swimmers who ensure the safety of other swimmers. They are trained in water safety and know how to initiate a rescue and remove a distressed swimmer from the water. They also know first aid and are able to give artificial respiration if necessary. In an effort to ensure swimmer's safety, lifeguards watch for situations that could lead to accidents. They do not allow rough play or dangerous objects in the water or the surrounding area.
Lifeguards also perform other duties such as cleaning the pool and the pool area. They remove objects from the water, pick up lost articles, dispose of trash from the pool area, and sometimes are responsible for putting chlorine and other chemicals into the water.
Pool Operators maintain and operate swimming pools and perform related work to keep the pools clean at all times.
They work in conjunction with the Aquatic Managers, Lifeguards and Gate Monitors to ensure safe swimming conditions have been met daily for our patrons.
Gate Monitors are responsible for ensuring the safety of the facility patrons by preventing accidents and responding to on-land emergencies.
They also know first aid and are able to perform CPR if necessary. In an effort to ensure swimmer's safety, Gate Monitors watch for situations that could lead to accidents.
Gate Monitors record patron counts on notebook computers and make sure only authorized patrons and their guests enter the pool area.
During a pool party/event, Gate Monitors make sure all patrons have been checked in on the pool logs. They also make sure the hourly pool readings are taken and recorded.
