What does it take to join the Texas Pool Lifeguard Team? Positive attitude, a willingness to learn and to teach others, strong decision making skills and an interest in serving the public at a historic landmark pool. Texas Pool Lifeguards are ambassadors for the pool itself, interacting with the public and saving lives when necessary. All Texas Pool Lifeguards must be certified by the American Red Cross. For more information email lifeguard-director@texaspool.org.
