Pools opening soon; The city of Raleigh needs 100 lifeguards

RALEIGH, NC (WNCN) – Pools across the Triangle will open in about a month, and the city of Raleigh is in dire need of lifeguards.

Assistant Parks Director Ken Hisler tells CBS 17 that they need to hire about 100 lifeguards for the city’s eight pools. Failure to fill these jobs could result in reduced hours and fewer swim lessons offered.

For the lifeguards already on deck, there’s a good chance some lifeguards will have to work at multiple locations, according to the city.

“The reality is we’re probably anticipating staggering where we might have to operate at reduced capacity, so let’s say I might have four pools open, but that could switch to four pools recently,” Hisler said.

The city increased lifeguard pay from $9 an hour to $13 an hour.

As opening day approaches, city guides are out and about in the community recruiting potential applicants.

“We work in contact with all high schools; We’re in touch with all colleges across the state,” Hisler said, noting that they’re in touch with athletic teams and church groups to recruit them.

Hisler says they will do whatever it takes to ensure every community gets plenty of pool time this summer.
