By Will Nash | January 24, 2013

The Long Beach Fire Department’s Marine Safety Division will once again sponsor the Junior Lifeguard Program this summer. The 2013 Program will be held June 24 to August 2.   Each of the morning and afternoon sessions will be held Monday through Friday at Junior Lifeguard Headquarters, located on the beach at 55th Place and Ocean Blvd. Students must be 9 years of age as of July 1, 2013. The Junior Lifeguard Program offers students 9 to 17 years of age the opportunity to receive instruction in Lifeguard rescue technique, emergency medical first-aid, ocean sports activity, physical conditioning, marine ecology, and public service. Field trips and competitions at other area beaches will highlight the six (6) week course. All aspects of beach activity will be explored from beach running to skin diving. The program is presented in a manner that will enable each student to participate to the best of his or her abilities while acquiring new skills and abilities.  For full details on this program and dates of Try Outs, please visit:  http://www.longbeach.gov/fire/special_programs/junior_lifeguards.asp
