Lifeguards for Pool Parties
Are you throwing a pool party for kids or adults and need some help with water safety? Consider hiring an American Red Cross certified lifeguard.
1 Certified Pool Lifeguard
Starting at $205 for 2 hours. An additional travel fee may apply based on location.
Lifeguards are staffed in a ratio of 1 lifeguard : 20 guests. If you will be having guests with special needs or with toddlers then this ratio will be reduced to accommodate them with extra attention.
Remember to request at least one lifeguard per water attraction (e.g. pool, slip and slide, or other feature with water).
If your pool or water feature has any physical obstructions that would prevent one person from being able to clearly see the entire pool or location please be sure to request more than one lifeguard.
Our American Red Cross certified lifeguards arrive in our company shirt unless you expressly request a red or red and white shirt.
Please remove any ride-on toys, inflatable toys, beach balls, or other obstructions from the water before your pool party starts. Such items cause a significant interference to lifeguards in being able to monitor the water.
Per health and wellness requirements the presence of any accidental fecal release (AFR) in water with swimmers requires an immediate pool closure and contact to your pool service to immediately "shock" or deal with the biohazard that has occurred in the water. Lifeguards are not qualified to deal with AFRs or other pool cleaning related issues that may arise at your event.
Any parties lasting after sunset must have a pool light turned on in the pool and spa (if applicable) area(s) for the safety of guests.

Lifeguards cannot guarantee safety at an event - safety is everyone's responsibility
Any children or adults who cannot swim should never enter a body of water, regardless of if a lifeguard is present or not. It is the host's responsibility to verify the swim ability of any guests present at their event, not the lifeguard's.
If you will have a lifeguard for a partial duration at a party (e.g. starting or stopping after guests arrive or before they depart) it is highly recommended that you secure any pool or access gate(s) and prohibit guests from entering the water feature until a lifeguard is present.
Any party over 3.5 hours requires a 10 minute State mandated paid break within the lfieguard’s time on site during which time they must be allowed to leave the pool and rest / eat / drink / use the bathroom.
If a party lasts more than 5 hours our lifeguards are required to take a state-mandated 30 minute meal break during which time they are removed from duty and will NOT be at their post. During this time it is highly recommended that the pool is cleared of all swimmers and that swimmers are not allowed back in to the water until the lifeguard is back at their post.
