Donated snacks will be available. We will provide a water jug for you to refill and we ask that you please bring your own water bottle (so we can reduce disposable cup waste).
REMEMBER – YOU GET FREE MEMBERSHIPSHIP WITH FBSP (A $25 VALUE) FOR CLEANING THE POOL JUST 4 HOURS IN ONE YEAR!
VOLUNTEERS: Please check the weather forecast and dress accordingly. Be prepared to get wet. Wear a pair of old sneakers / watersocks / teva-type sandals because the bottom is slippery. Wear clothes you do not mind getting wet in. Typically the work does not require you to submerge totally but wading in waist high water is not uncommon. Bring gloves as some of the duties can cause blisters. Use sunscreen on all exposed areas; and we recommend a big hat to help shade your face & neck.
Please note: No swimming is allowed because the lifeguards are part of the cleanup crew. Please let the shift leader assigned to your time know of any jobs that you do not feel you can do. We are permitted to use the showers when we’re finished cleaning. Remember that staff will be cleaning, so post a lookout at the dressing room door if you feel the need.
OBJECTIVES: (subject to change depending on the priorities set by BSP staff)
1.) Push-broom the shallow end of the pool to remove as much algae as possible
2.) Scrub rails to remove algae
4.) Weeding in bathhouse garden areas
Thanks in advance for your help! We’ll see you at the pool!
