UNION COUNTY, NJ – Students age 16 and older looking for summer jobs can spent their days at the pool by becoming certified to be lifeguard by contacting the Department of Parks and Recreation Department.

 “Lifeguarding provides a unique opportunity to add a position to your resume or college application that demonstrates a high degree of reliability and responsibility,” said Freeholder Chairman Bruce H. Bergen. “Our pools are conveniently located and we offer both part time and full time schedules. I encourage you to call now and find out how to apply.”

To find out about certification and physical requirements, email the Union County Department of Parks and Recreation at Warinanco@ucnj.org or call 908-298-7849 Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
