The Arlington swimming pool is suffering from a lack of lifeguards, and as a result will have reduced hours this week. The Courier reports the pool will only be open from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m. Thursday, and will be closed Saturday. Arlington Council members were told the pool doesn’t have enough lifeguards on staff right now.
Normally there are 16 to 17 lifeguards, but that number is down to around 12 this year. With some of them going on family vacations and taking part in other activities, that doesn’t leave enough people to staff to pool.
To help the situation, the pool manager may become licensed to certify lifeguards.
