Northside Hospital has donated $50,000 to Gwinnett County to help train lifeguards with American Red Cross resources and materials. Gwinnett Parks and Recreation is one of the largest providers of lifeguard training in the state and trains all lifeguards in-house using American Red Cross materials. The donation will help cover the cost of leadership and safety training and fund additional training in cultural competency. The county’s outdoor pools will open on May 27, and lifeguards will receive starting pay of $16.50, while the entry pay for senior-level lifeguard II positions is $18.50. Gwinnett County pools and aquatic centers receive around 540,000 visitors annually, and lifeguards are tasked with ensuring their safety.
