The Best Summer Job
The skills acquired as a lifeguard reach beyond the aquatic and recreation industry. The values taught and developed lead to numerous career opportunities and a strong work ethic. By applying these skills and experiences, many guards have followed rewarding careers in a variety of professions including health, business, law and politics. Even our 40th president, Ronald Reagan, began his professional career as a lifeguard.
High Sierra Pools is proud to provide year-round American Red Cross training. Our instructors are Nationally certified and experienced in teaching the current American Red Cross Lifeguard Training Program. The state of the art program trains our guards to act with speed, maturity and confidence in emergency situations both in and out of the water. Instructional topics include: accident prevention through surveillance & recognition, water rescue skills, in-service training, first aid, CPR and the use of defibrillators.
