Must be Lifeguard Certified with CPR & First Aid for a Level 2b Beach waterfront. If you are not currently lifeguard certified, you must prove that you are enrolled or willing to enroll in a Lifeguard certification class. ** Please note – classes are resuming on a very limited basis. Please check your local American Red Cross for lifeguarding class availability. 

For lifeguards who are unable to attain re-certification due to limited availability of re-certification classes for CPR, first aid, lifeguarding – NYSDOH has issued an extension of certification as long as pre-existing certifications expired between January 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021

Many recertification courses for CPR, first aid, lifeguarding, and other aquatic courses have not resumed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, the NYSDOH’s is extending the statewide variance last reissued on December 22, 2020 to the regulatory provisions that impose a time limit for the validity of such courses to allow individuals to continue to work or volunteer at regulated swimming pools, bathing beaches, recreational aquatic spray grounds, and children’s camps. 

This variance will be applicable to certifications that expire between January 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021. Please note that we anticipate this to be the last extension; therefore, individuals currently working or volunteering under the variance should strive to be recertified as soon as possible.

The variance is issued with the condition that each individual certificate holder to whom this variance applies, must attest in writing that they have reviewed their course training materials for the required certifications, and has the skills and physical ability to perform lifeguarding and CPR responsibilities.  The Town of Long Lake will provide paperwork to those individuals seeking to attest to their re-certification. More information will be available upon interviews.
