The most commonly-used job description of a lifeguard that seems to transcend all facilities and areas is thus:

To ensure the safety of all patrons present by enforcing facility regulations, monitoring activity, and rendering emergency care in the event that a patron suffers from an incident. Furthermore, lifeguards are also responsible for maintaining the quality of a facility by regulating the behavior of patrons.

All other responsibilities are usually, in one way or another, either directly or indirectly related to the points given above.
