Parks Foundation offers lifeguard incentive

Friday, April 17, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

Thursday was the City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department’s “Lifeguard Hiring Day.” To celebrate, the Parks Department teamed up with the Austin Parks Foundation to offer the first Lifeguard Hiring Incentive program. As a result, the first 500 lifeguards that are hired, trained and work the first week of the season will receive a $100 VISA gift card. The city will be holding two more hiring days for lifeguards, on May 7 and May 20. For more information, visit the city’s website on lifeguarding in Austin.  More than 750 lifeguards are needed in order to safely operate Austin’s city pools this summer.
