Job Information and Requirements

The North Bethany Beach Patrol requires its lifeguards to be team-oriented men and women capable of handling a variety of situations in adverse conditions with competence and professionalism. Lifeguards are required to have current American Red Cross Certification in Lifeguarding, First Aid and CPR-AED and meet rigorous physical fitness standards. All applicants are required to pass a beach test consisting of a quarter mile soft sand run followed by a 500 meter ocean swim in a combined time of 10 minutes or less. Applicants not residing within the immediate area may submit a video link of a simulated beach test demonstrating their ability to complete the run/swim requirement by running a quarter mile on the inner most lane of a standard track and swimming 22 lengths of 25 yard pool or 20 lengths of a 25 meter pool in a combined time of 10 minutes or less. All new hires must still take and pass the actual beach test as a condition of employment but the run/swim video will suffice for application purposes. New employees must also pass a 60 day probationary period and are subject to drug screening.
