DNR Seeks Lifeguards At State Park Facilities

Those looking to qualify for a summer job, and who may want to get bronzed in the process, can now retrieve a bit of information through the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.

The DNR says it’s taking applications for summer lifeguard positions. Tests are required for first-year lifeguards at State Park facilities. Applicants who have already been lifeguards at more than 10 locations around the state are exempt from taking the test.

According to the DNR, all of the lifeguards at their State Park facilities are certified in CPR, swimming, and other lifeguarding techniques. The test that’s required to be considered for the positions runs about 50 questions long; and applicants must score at least a 70-percent.

Swim season typically runs from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
