Now Hiring: Westchester looking for seasonal park rangers this summer
The Westchester County Parks Department is looking for seasonal park rangers to patrol county parks this summer.
In a post on Facebook, the department says uniformed park rangers work under the supervision of county police officers to maintain a safe and enjoyable atmosphere in the county's parks.
They assist park users, provide information on park rules and procedures, help in searches for lost children, perform basic first aid on occasion and make regular security checks of buildings and facilities.
First-time park rangers are paid $16 hourly. Salaries are higher for those who have worked as a ranger for the county before.
To qualify, applicants must be a high school graduate, at least 18 years of age, a U.S. citizen, and possess a valid New York state driver's license by the time of appointment.
Preference in hiring may be shown to Westchester residents.
Applications are due by Feb. 17.
