Pool safety

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - Allentown has lowered the age requirement to work as a lifeguard at city pools.

People now need to be 15 years old in order to become a lifeguard.

Candidates must maintain a current, valid certification. Pay starts at $14 an hour. People can apply for a summer lifeguarding position at the city's website.

The city says it has added two more weekends where people can get certified to be a lifeguard.  People can get certified the weekends of June 17-19 and June 24-26.
