You're going to get someone who is one hundred percent committed to the their job. You are always going to get someone who is ready to work, ready to learn and is ready to improve oneself. You will have a team player, one that is willing to do whatever he can to help the department. You are going to get someone who cares about his patient and his co-workers. This is a department where I can see great things happening. The leadership from the Chief all the way to the Lieutenants is phenomenal. We are always trying to improve and I want to be part of that. I see myself retiring here with my family and proudly saying that I worked at the Grayslake Fire Protection District.

The role of the pool manager is to keep order and maintenance of the pool. We are tasked with answering any questions that patrons have, checking the chemicals of the pool and making sure that lifeguards are up to date on their training. When it comes to training we make sure that lifeguards are up to date on their: CPR, Audits (managers watching guards to make sure they are doing their duties on deck) and real life scenarios. I have personally been a pool manager for four years now and have taught more than fifty lifeguard classes resulting in guards receiving 5/5 rating from our Auditors, StarGuard Elite. We teach guards on how to do proper first aid on patrons, how to perform CPR, rescue breathing and how to perform in water spinal stabilization. This job has allowed me to see a number of medical emergencies: seizures, open fractures, respiratory distress, falls and heart attacks to name a few.
The job of squad leader with the glenview park district was the same as a normal lifeguard. In addition, we were assigned to a squad that we would lead during the summer months. Squad Leaders would create a better work environment for lifeguards by creating after work specials and competitions. Squad Leaders would be assigned to a group of guards in order to have daily communication with each other as well provide help. We would become a second set of hands for Facility Managers by running training operations, chemical testing and answering patrons questions.
The role of a lifeguard is to enforce rules (in and out of the pool), have a knowledge of CPR and first aid skills and always be rescue ready whether on break or watching your water. We are trained to perform CPR, rescue breaths and in water spinals. We trained on a weekly and daily basis in order to keep our skills up to date. Once a month, during the summer, our auditors (StarGuard Elite), come in and test our skills in a number of scenarios and give us a ranking on how well we did as a whole. Lifeguards scan the pool in a systematic way so that there is zero chance that we would miss someone in distress.
