|LIFEGUARDING AT THE AQUATIC CENTER: |
Lifeguards must be at least 15 years old and pass a Jeff Ellis and Associates lifeguard certification course, which is considered the gold-standard in aquatic risk management. Training includes master lifesaving techniques, first-aid, AED use, and supplemental oxygen use.
Course participation does not guarantee future employment at the BCRD Aquatic Center but is mandatory for anyone wishing to apply to be a part of the Lifeguard Staff.
2019 LIFEGUARD CERTIFICATION COURSE DATES:
May 9, 10, 11, 16, 17, 18

|LIGHTNING POLICY: |
The BCRD Aquatic Center will close if the lightening is detected within a 10 mile radius and/or thunder is heard.
The pool will reopen 30 minutes after the last audible thunder and after lightening has moved beyond the 10 mile radius.
Storms can be unpredictable in the summer and our first priority is swimmer safety.
