Clark County Public Works hiring lifeguards for Klineline Pond

By , Columbian staff writer

Clark County Public Works has summer lifeguard positions available at Klineline Pond.

Klineline Pond is the only county park where lifeguards are provided during the summer months. The park also features a chlorinated “splash pad” with features for water play, which is open when lifeguards are present.

Lifeguards at Klineline Pond provide water rescue for children and adults in distress, provide emergency medical care and response for park patrons, educate users about water recreation safety, and may perform basic park maintenance duties.

Lifeguard positions offer competitive pay and are seasonal in nature, with service typically beginning in mid-June and ending near Labor Day. Public Works provides all required trainings for lifeguards at no cost to the employee. No prior experience is required.

Prospective lifeguards will complete 64 hours of training, which includes advanced first aid, physical fitness and public relations training.
