Joe Downtown: City seeking lifeguards, swim instructors

Lifeguards and swim instructors are needed to patrol the waters of city pools this summer.

The city has about 35 positions available for certified lifeguards and water safety instructors. The city operates six pools: Baker, Doolittle, Garside, Municipal, Pavilion Center, and the Carlos L. Martinez/Darrio J. Hall Family Pool at Gary Reese Freedom Park.

Applicants must be at least 16 years old and be certified in lifeguarding, first aid, CPR and automated external defibrillator use.

The city offers pre-lifeguarding training and the Red Cross has lifeguarding courses.

If interested, schedule an interview by calling (702) 229-6309 to schedule an interview or tryout. Applications can also be submitted online at

Interviews will be held Thursday at the Municipal Pool, 431 E. Bonanza Road.

Pool openings for the season are varied, with some opening Memorial Day weekend and others on June 9.
