Long Beach Fire Department Junior Lifeguard Program


I am happy to announce that the Long Beach Fire Department’s Marine Safety Division will once again sponsor the 2016 Junior Lifeguard Program. The 6-week program will kick off on June 27, 2016. The Junior Lifeguard Program offers youth 9-17 years of age the opportunity to receive instruction in lifeguard rescue techniques, first aid, ocean sports, physical conditioning, and marine ecology, along with CPR certification/First Aid Certification.

For the first time ever, in an effort to expand the program to youth throughout the greater Long Beach area, we are partnering with Parks Rec & Marine, and conducting swim tryouts on multiple days and at two separate locations:
