The lifeguards were recognized for their hard work. The city wanted to thank them for keeping the children and families of Omaha safe this summer in the pools
Parks and Recreation Director Brook Bench said, “It’s our Lifeguard Appreciation Day. It’s a proclamation our mayor gives and it’s just to show the appreciation to all of our lifeguards who worked so hard over the summer to keep all of our kids and families safe."
This was the first year for some of the lifeguards while others have been doing this for as long as seven years.
