Due to the continued lifeguard shortage, the Borough of Dormont must delay opening the pool from the scheduled date of June 12th. Opening Day is now scheduled for June 19th. While our wage increase and enhanced recruitment efforts have seen positive results, additional lifeguards and lifeguard supervisors are still desperately needed. During this delay, we will continue our recruitment efforts and schedule candidates for lifeguard training class next weekend. As always, we appreciate your patience and support during this unprecedented labor shortage national wide.
Further adjustments will be made to the schedule including more daily closures if we are unable to recruit and train more lifeguard and lifeguard supervisors. Other changes may also be possible such as closing certain sections of the pool and limiting capacity. Please consider applying to be a lifeguard and helping us find more lifeguards by sharing this post as well as reaching out to anyone including high school and college students looking for summer employment. As always, the latest information can be found on our website: boro.dormont.pa.us/Dormont-Pool
