DelGrosso's Water Park Lifeguard Teams Earns Aquatics Safety Award
DelGrosso’s Park and Laguna Splash announced today that it has been awarded the prestigious “Silver International Aquatic Safety Award”. Earning this award demonstrates that the aquatic facilities they operate consistently exceed industry standards in risk management and epitomize aquatic safety excellence. International Aquatic Safety Awards are conferred to deserving aquatic facilities by Jeff Ellis & Associates, Inc. - International Aquatic Safety and Risk Management Consultants.
“This award is a testament to the culture of safety at DelGrosso’s Park and Laguna Splash. Safety continues to be our top priority and I am extremely proud of our lifeguarding team for their dedication to this mission,” said Justin Brown, Director of Aquatics.
International Aquatic Safety Awards are presented annually to participants in E&A's Comprehensive Aquatic Risk Management Program (CARMP) and are based on the results of multiple random Unannounced Aquatic Facility Operational Safety Audits throughout the year. These audits include undercover video surveillance of individual lifeguards while they protect their Zone of Protection® areas, in order to accurately evaluate their professional diligence. Additionally, individual and team basic life support and rescue skills are evaluated, along with simulated emergencies that measure the effectiveness of established Emergency Action Plans. The audit concludes with administrative, supervisory and facility evaluations. All E&A client facilities are top performers and represent the finest and safest aquatic facilities in the world. As such, it is of particular note when E&A facilities perform so well that they are granted an International Aquatic Safety Award.
DelGrosso’s Park and Laguna Splash is still hiring lifeguards for the 2016 Season. The park pays for all the training fees. Anyone who is interested in becoming a lifeguard can apply online at www.DelGrossos.com. DelGrosso’s Park is an equal opportunity employer.
