Pittsburgh Public Safety Is Hiring New School Crossing Guards

 

The City of Pittsburgh Public Safety Department is currently accepting applications for School Crossing Guards to fill vacancies at various school crossings throughout the city.

All applicants must be at least 18 years of age, possess a valid Class C Pennsylvania Driver’s License, must pass a background check, and are required to be City of Pittsburgh residents throughout the duration of their employment.

There are other requirements too, according to veteran City of Pittsburgh Crossing Guard, Marlene Lamanna.

“You must be able to tolerate all weather, be willing to travel around the city and, most importantly, you have to really love children,” says Lamanna.

But after 41 years on the job, she says the latter requirement is the best part.

“You’re basically the first person they see in the morning and they share everything with us,” she said.

And that, Lamanna says, can lead to life-long friendships.

“We see generations,” Lamanna said. “People we crossed as children will now come back with their own children.”
