Sign up for great summer lifeguarding jobs at Babcock State Park or Kanawha State Forest

    SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Lifeguarding is great work experience in an outdoor setting. Lifeguarding positions are available for summer 2012 employment at Babcock State Park in Fayette County and Kanawha State Forest in Kanawha County. This is an opportunity that can pay off well past the summer paycheck, according to officials with the West Virginia State Parks system.

    “Lifeguarding is great summer job, and lifeguarding at a state park is work experience that rewards an employee for a lifetime,” said Clinton Cochran, superintendent at Babcock State Park. “It’s more than a job; it’s a responsibility. You meet a lot of different people from all over West Virginia and often from other states and countries that visit our state parks. And it looks good on a resume. Lifeguard experience indicates to future employers that the job-seeker is safety minded, has excelled in a regimented training course, and is genuinely concerned about the welfare of people at his or her worksite.”      
      Individuals working at swimming facilities in West Virginia are required by state and local health departments to be certified. To learn more about these two areas visit www.babcocksp.com and www.kanawhastateforest.com.

     Men or women interested in lifeguarding positions this summer at any of West Virginia’s state parks with swimming areas should contact: Clinton Cochran at 304-438-3004 or babcocksp@wv.gov; Kevin Dials, at 304-558-3500 or KanawhaSF@wv.gov; or District Administrator Brad Reed at Brad.R.Reed@wv.gov or 304-558-2764.
