Licensed Lifeguards

Gurnee Park District lifeguards are licensed by Jeff Ellis & Associates, the premier lifeguard licensing body in the world. Our goal is to provide a safe, customer-friendly aquatic environment for all.  Five independent and unannounced safety audits are performed with lifeguard staff and management annually to ensure that we are meeting the highest safety standards.  Routine in-house training and auditing are also performed.
