Returning Lifeguards

CPR is only good for one year; and must run through Labor Day of 2015 if you plan to work with us next summer. You must possess a valid American Red Cross for the Professional Rescuer Certification, or a valid American Heart Association for the Healthcare Provider certification. If you do not possess a current and valid CPR card that runs through Labor Day of 2014, then you will need recertification.
If you have any questions please email DCR.AquaticsUnit@massmail.state.ma.us.
Please check your other certifications to see if you need to get recertifications this year. This reminder gives you plenty of notice and opportunity to get recertified before the beginning of the next season.

You will not be placed in a position until we have seen all original and valid certifications and possess a copy of them front and back, accompanying your passing written and swim test scores.
Under 18: Release of Liability signed by parent/guardian is required.
