Metroparks looking for summer lifeguards

Published On: Apr 04 2013 03:44:44 PM EDT

Three Huron-Clinton Metroparks are looking to hire summer lifeguards.

  • Lower Huron Metropark is looking to staff its Turtle Cove Aquatic Center.
  • Willow Metropark is in need of guards for its pool.
  • Lake Erie Metropark has positions open at its wave pool.

A current American Red Cross Lifeguard Certification is required. Lifeguards start at $8.50 per hour and must be available Memorial Day through Labor Day; weekends and holidays.

Applicants must pass a prescribed physical examination before being hired, as well as a vision test (vision correctable to 20/30).

The examination and vision test are conducted by a Metropark designated clinic and are paid for by the park.

Applications can be obtained at any Metropark office. All applications should be turned in to the park of interest.

For those applying at multiple parks, separate applications must be completed for each location.
