Private Event Lifeguards
Cooksey's Lifeguard and Swim has you covered. We have friendly, professional, and well trained lifeguards to give you the peace of mind you are looking for. Every Cooksey's lifeguard works at one of our country clubs, HOAs, or hotels, which keeps them up to date with all of their lifeguard training and certifications. Each one of our Cooksey's Private Event Lifeguards comes in full lifeguard uniform, rescue tube, rescue mask, and basic first aid kit. From the moment they clock in to the moment they clock out, you and the people in your pool are protected under our lifeguard liability insurance policy.
Cooksey's Lifeguard Services
What Makes our lifeguards the best
Our lifeguards are Red Cross trained and have up to date certifications. We train and test them before they are able to work for Cooksey's. What we look for in a Cooksey lifeguard is for them to be proactive, friendly, and able to enforce rules in a polite manner. All our lifeguards know that it only takes 34 seconds for a child to drown which means they always keep their eyes on the water. You can tell when a lifeguard is scanning because they have a pattern to their head movement which always ends in a downward head sweep every 10-15 seconds. From the moment our Cooksey lifeguard clocks-in your pool and everyone in it is protected under our liability insurance.
Our private event lifeguards are perfect for anyone looking to hire a lifeguard to come to a house, apartment, community pool, or any other pool for a one-time event. We can send lifeguards for all sized events: from no swimmers to max capacity. Our ratio is 1:15 swimmers in the pool at one time. Every one of the Cooksey Lifeguards are Red Cross trained lifeguards and are up to date with all of Red Cross procedures.
This is a lifeguard that will come to any filming location. They are professional and will stay out of the production's way throughout the film shoot, while still keeping both eyes on the pool while it is being used. We do have a minimum of 5 hours and a maximum amount of swimmers that we require in order to get the less expensive film shoot price. Please check the store for more information on our film shoot lifeguard prices.
A fun guard is a lifeguard trained staff that will be in the water with the children to play games and interact with them throughout the private event. This is a fun way to get swimmers to stay active and engaged throughout the party. Please note that the fun guard is different from a lifeguard; they do not do surveillance to insure all kids are safe, as they are focusing on the games. Most people book both a lifeguard and a fun guard for their events to insure safety of their swimmers.

As long as you let us know about the cancelation five days (120 hours) before the date of the event you will get a full refund. If you cancel less than five days before the event you will get half of the total amount back.
