The primary focus of our guards is the safety of every person using the pool. This means that our lifeguards function as authority figures around the pool, making sure that the rules and regulations are observed. Our lifeguards have the authority to remove someone from the pool if their behavior becomes unruly or is a threat to the safety of other swimmers.

Our lifeguards perform a number of other tasks, many of which our members may never see. They are often called upon to teach basic pool safety which involves everything from working with children to make sure they stay safe while enjoying the pool to reminding people to not run along the edge of the pool.

Behind the scenes our guards are involved in the maintenance of the pool itself - making sure the water is filtering properly and performing routine tests to make sure water chemistry is at proper levels.

Our certified lifeguards are trained in basic lifesaving techniques and first aid. This ensures that the guards on our stands have the knowledge and skills needed to prevent and respond to any type of aquatic emergencies.
