Become a lifeguard

Being a lifeguard is a great way to spend your days by the pool and learn lifesaving skills while helping others stay safe in the water. It is also a great way to build a resume and connect with people.

EVRPD has two pools and we are always looking for responsible adults and young adults interested in joining our aquatics team. We offer free training for those who gain employment as a lifeguard with EVRPD as well as a flexible schedule, Estes Valley Community Center membership benefits and an awesome working environment.

For more information about lifeguarding, contact Tiffany Barson, Aquatics Manager, at or call her at 970-586-8191.
