If you have not seen it yet, you will want to 'click' on the link in the left hand menu bar on the homepage to "LACO Lifeguards in the News" to read about your lifeguard colleagues in action.

In addition, the same admonition applies to the LACOLA website as with, e.g., active lifeguards (aka LACOLA Members) need to be registered so that they can access the member pages. As stated at

"LACOLA Members! Please read!
If you are a LACOLA member and you are viewing the website but have not registered, you are missing out on vital information. Half of the website is for members that have registered and LACOLA sends out information sometimes that is only sent via email or may be time sensitive in nature. If you have not registered you will not get this information!"

D. That Lifeguard Division publishes a great deal of information online at its own LIFEGUARD DIVISION website at:

(i) For example, if you have not seen the Dept's Photo Gallery, check it out at:

(ii) Also, check out the "Related Links" page at:

On behalf of COUNTY RECURRENT, you are now IN THE LOOP !
