Lifeguard Numbers Take a Dive in the Country
A main summer staple is taking a dive in numbers with a lifeguard shortage drifting across the country. The Pandemic was the initial cause of the decline, but even now with restrictions completely lifted the shortage has continued.
This is taking away a sense of safety from swimmers this summer.
Local YMCA’s are still accepting lifeguard applications with more classes being added. Applicants must be 15 and older to be certified.
