On Thursday, April 7, the first meeting took place for the
Lifeguard Awareness Committee. This committee has come together with an initial
goal of growing the number of lifeguards in Broward and Dade Counties. The
initial group is comprised of individuals from fire and rescue, parks and
recreation, swim schools, and a representative from Every Child A Swimmer, as
well as member companies of the Florida Swimming Pool Association, Broward
Chapter. For the first time ever, we are hearing from professionals who recruit
lifeguards, that they are losing qualified individuals to the fast food
industry. There’s a shortage and the FSPA Broward Chapter Board of Directors
decided to get involved! The mission is to find those who want to become
lifeguards and who either don’t have the swim experience yet or cannot afford
the training. Stay tuned for more details on how this committee will work with
the local community. The committee will be meeting the first Thursday of the
month at 10:00 a.m. If you’re interested in being part of this group,
please let Diane know.
