Harmony Acres lifeguards are trained to be watchful and knowledgeable about preventing danger in and around the water. All of our Lifeguards are American Red Cross trained in First-Aid, CPR, and AED. Fitness, education, and problem solving skills are very important when considering being a lifeguard. While it looks fun to run in slow motion on TV and get a great tan, being a lifeguard is a serious and important job. Lifeguards can be the difference between life and death when at the pool and is a serious responsibility. Our guards take part in weekly fitness drills and in-services so we can always be ready to protect the patrons who trust us when at Harmony Acres. 

Our pool is always looking for new and friendly faces who are interested in working hard as a lifeguard. We focus on team work and communication and have an American Red Cross Lifeguard instructor on staff who will help with your training and any questions you might have. Though we're only open during the summer months you may turn in a lifeguard application whenever, either at the Town of Bluefield Town Hall or at Harmony Acres Pool.
