PAWTUCKET, R.I. (WLNE)- Pawtucket is looking for lifeguards so the city can open the pool at Fairlawn Veterans Memorial Park for the summer.

“We can’t wait to open our pool and provide Pawtucket with the relaxing and refreshing opportunity to swim this summer, but we need the support of residents looking for the perfect summer job opportunity to help staff our pool,” said Mayor Donald Grebien.

Lifeguards will be paid $15 per hour. The city will also reimburse the lifeguard certification cost up to $350 over two years.

Anyone over the age of 16 can find the certification information here.

All lifeguards are required to have an American Red Cross Certification for Lifesaving and American Red Cross Certification for First Aid.

“We hope to get someone in as soon as possible in order to open the pool,” said Recreation Manager John Blais.
