2020 Summer Lifeguard Application ends on April 1st & Information

Greetings Returning & New Applicant Lifeguards,


           Every year we evaluate our facilities and operation procedures. This past summer (2019), we had the American Red Cross examiner out to both, Eichler’s Cove Beach, and Treadwell pool. We are excited to announce that both facilities passed the aquatics inspection.

           There are a couple of changes that will be made for the 2020 summer season. In which, we are requiring all future staff (returning and new) to attend a preseason lifeguard evaluation. Part of this evaluation will include lifeguard skills, CPR, first aid, and AED testing. For anyone that needs to be Recertified, this will also give you the opportunity to get recertified.

The evaluations will be held at the Newtown Community Center - 8 Simpson St. Newtown, CT 06470 - Dates to be announced.
            I have included a copy of the 2020 lifeguard vacation policy and a copy of the 2020 lifeguard job description. If you are a swim instructor, I have also included a copy of the swim instructor job description. For the 2020 season we are asking that all of our swim instructors are also lifeguards. Our goal is to hire approximately 30 lifeguards for the 2020 summer.

            Once you attend and pass your lifeguard evaluation you will receive a job offer letter, the lifeguard handbook, a copy of the EAP for both facilities, and a copy of the town policies for the summer 2020 season.

If you have any questions please let me know as soon as possible.
