Do You Have What It Takes To Be A DCR Lifeguard?

Douglas Lifeguard

DCR lifeguards are professional rescuers, trained to help prevent injuries and to respond in an emergency to help save a life. As part of a team, lifeguards must work together to calmly and efficiently manage crisis situations.

With a commitment to water safety, the Department is in need of certified lifeguards and head lifeguards to work at our many pools as well as at our inland and ocean beaches.
