The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation announced there will be four lifeguard exams scheduled in the Niagara Region for the 2023 season.

“NYS Parks were able to keep all of our Niagara Region swimming facilities open in 2022 thanks to our dedicated lifeguards. We think our parks are great places to work, and we welcome anyone who would like to join us in protecting the public as they enjoy our warm WNY summer days,” said Andrew Chouinard, Niagara Region health and safety manager.

Testing – required for anyone wishing to work as a lifeguard at any state park – will take place as follows:

Prior to employment, successful candidates must be at least 15 years of age and must furnish proof of completion of CPR for the professional and completion of the American Red Cross lifeguard training, which includes first-aid, with a certificate for the waterfront module or equivalent courses. Successful candidates will also need a physician's certification of adequate physical fitness, including a minimum of 20/40 uncorrected vision after receiving a conditional job offer.

Lifeguard positions in the Niagara Region will be available at Beaver Island, Woodlawn Beach, Evangola and Fort Niagara state parks, and will pay between $20 and $24 an hour.
