The shortage of lifeguards is currently keeping 9 City pools closed. Only two pools have been open this summer.

The City has been trying to fill lifeguard positions all summer.  Mayor Byron Brown said,

It’s all hands-on deck as we put out a call to our young people to become a City of Buffalo Lifeguard. Like many cities across the country, Buffalo is experiencing a lifeguard shortage which threatens our ability to open all of our great pools this summer. To ensure that we are able to open on time, we need to start training new lifeguards today. It’s a serious job opportunity, with good pay and promises some serious summer fun.
