Why hire us over another lifeguard company or even the kid down the street in Orange County Inland Empire?

We do a thorough evaluation and interview for all of our Orange County Inland Empire Lifeguard for hire staff. We also are one of the only Orange County Inland Empire Lifeguard for Hire companies that protects you with our insurance for PROFESSIONAL as well as general liability insurance and workers comp insurance.  Most lifeguard companies carry the minimum general liability (slips and falls) but they don’t carry the more specific professional liability coverage nor workers comp.  

Most importantly, if an accident happens no matter who’s at fault, you want your guard(s) properly insured for your protection.  Similarly, would you drive a car without car insurance or go to a doctor who you found didn’t carry malpractice insurance?  Above all, we cover you and your event, so you can enjoy the party.  

Additionally, almost all freelancers are completely uninsured. Who checks their criminal backgrounds and lifeguard certification status? Our staff is professionally checked for this. We hire the cream of the crop with the best experience, and again, with us, you have a team of managers and a company to back you up if someone flakes.

Abigail Garcia, Event Lifeguard, Traveler, Dancer, and Dog-Mom

Los Angeles

Hello, I am CSUN Grad with a background in Child Development. I have been working with children since 2018. As well as have been a lifeguard and swim instructor since the summer of 2018 and recently for the past two summers I have also been teaching aquarobics. My love for the water was born during High School when I joined the swim team and the water polo team. Once, I graduated High School I knew I wanted to be in the water in any shape or form, so I decided to become a lifeguard and swim instructor for all ages. A fun fact about me is that as much as I love the water, I love the dancefloor.

Serving: All Los Angeles

Andre Flores, Lifeguard for Hire

Los Angeles and Orange Counties

I’ve lifeguarded for several different facilities both in SoCal and NorCal and enjoyed the learning experience from it! I genuinely enjoy lifeguarding because of the difference we make in preventing life threatening situations. A fun fact about me is I both play and coach competitive water polo at the college and high school level currently, so I guess its nice to learn the game from both perspectives.

I serve the LA and OC communities of Montebello, Anaheim, Pomona, Pasadena, among others. 

Angela Nichols, Lifeguard, Swim Instructor – *Has Pool Access

home in Anaheim, 10 years experience!

13 years experience swim teaching! *Has Pool Access in Anaheim

General Areas I serve:Anaheim, Santa Ana, Huntington Beach, Newport Beach

In my ten years as a swim instructor I have taught swim lessons to children of all ages, adults learning to swim for the first time, and adults taking lessons to improve technique. I have experience with students with special needs, stroke work, and water polo. My favorite part of teaching swim lessons is seeing my swimmers become more confident in the water and their abilities. I was a competitive swimmer for twelve years and played Water Polo through High School. I speak French, and I am Lifeguard, CPR/AED, and First Aid certified.

My favorite thing about Event Lifeguarding is the opportunity to be a part of your special day! I have ten years of lifeguard experience including open water, summer camp, water park, and poolside. I am also a swim instructor and have many years of experience working with children.

Hi, I’m Angelina! I’m very kind and respectful and I’m always up for a challenge. Fun fact about me: I love people! I became a lifeguard because I’m genuinely passionate about helping others, and forming lasting connections. I’m comfortable around all ages, from really young to the elderly, and I’m especially good with kids. Above all else, I love the feeling of knowing that I was able to create a positive experience in someone’s life, even in a small way.

Chris, Event Lifeguard and Aspiring Actor

Los Angeles

Hello, I have been guarding for over 5 years and managed many different pools and their respective lifeguards. I like to create a fun but safe environment for patrons. I have only had to make a hand full of rescues in my career, because I make sure to graciously, yet sternly enforce the pool rules for everyone. What I like most about lifeguarding events is the people that I get to meet, as well as providing ease of mind for all patrons. I personally love parties/events and throwing them for people, so this is just an extension of what I already love to do. I look forward to working with you soon!

Daisy Torres, Lifeguard , Outdoors enthusiast and traveler

I’ve spent the past 3 summers lifeguarding at pools and lakes in the Northwest corner of Connecticut, where I grew up. I knew how to swim before I could walk, and my love for the water turned into a real passion for guarding and water safety. Swimming has continued to be a very important skill in my life, and as a lifeguard, I wish to help others strengthen the skills of their own in a safe and fun environment.

Hi, my name is Dean! I have been a lifeguard for three years now. I was first introduced to lifeguarding in the 8th grade, when I became a junior lifeguard. Lifeguarding is a huge responsibility, but it’s the best because I get to meet new people. My intention as a lifeguard is to keep the pool I am watching safe, as everyone is having a blast. A quick fun fact about me is that I played water polo and swam all four years of high school. Lastly, I am fluent in American Sign Language.
