City of Phoenix Desperate To Hire Lifeguards

City of Phoenix officials say they need more than 400 lifeguards to open the city’s public pools this summer and are urgently hiring lifeguards for the 2022 pool season.

The Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department recently announced they are struggling to hire summer lifeguards for the 2022 pool season.

Phoenix says they needs to hire more than 400 lifeguards to safely open the city’s current 29 public pools this summer. If they cannot meet their hiring requirement, they will not be able to open all 29 pools. Ultimately that means less people will have access to a pool where they can cool off and opportunities for children to learn how to swim decrease as well.

All City of Phoenix lifeguards hired are required to go through StarGuard Training for certification. Certification classes begin today and will run through March 28. Applicants must be at least 15 years old.
