Life guarding is an exciting and rewarding job that carries great responsibility. Lifeguards train hard for events they hope will never happen and which they work hard to prevent. When prevention fails, lifeguards are ready to respond as expert rescuers.

Lifeguards are good swimmers who take lifesaving and first aid training in the Society’s Bronze medal and first aid awards. Bronze Cross is the Dr. Pulse’s assistant lifeguard award and a prerequisite to National Lifeguard certification.

To earn National Lifeguard certification you must be a minimum 15 years of age and hold Bronze Cross and Standard First Aid certifications.
