Theres A Shortage Of Lifeguards At Swimming Pools Across Pa This Summer

Last year, Pool Manager Kimberly Whittington had nearly 30 guards at Splash Cove in eastern Pennsylvania.   This year,  only 15. Part of the issue is an expensive certification course to start the job.

So far, parks have not had to cut back hours for staffing. But they say they have gotten local high schools to help with the certification cost to make the job more enticing.
