Title Sponsors: HornerXpress, Stone Hardscapes, AquaCal, and Lo-Chlor; Fluidra; Pentair; Hayward; and SGM.GoldSponsors: Pool Corp. and Raypak. Silver Sponsor: Proline Distributors. On Thursday, April 7, the first meeting took place for the Lifeguard Awareness Commi t tee. Thi s committee has come together with an initial goal of growing the number of lifeguards in Broward and Dade Counties. The initial group is comprised of individuals from fire and rescue, parks and recreation, swim schools, and a representative from Every Chi ld A Swimmer, as well as member companies of the Florida Swimming Pool Association, Broward Chapter. For the first time ever, we are hearing from professionals who recruit lifeguards, that they are losing qualified individuals to the fast food industry. There’s a shortage and the FSPA Broward Chapter Board of Directors decided to get involved! The mission is to find those who want to become lifeguards and who either don’t have the swim experience yet or cannot afford the training. Stay tuned for more details Congratulations! Here are our newest Florida Public Pool Specialists!
