Like us on facebook! Newport Beach Junior Lifeguard Program
Our main objective is to provide children ages 9 to 15 with training in ocean safety. The program content consists of 50% ocean proofing, 15% physical development, 15% marine safety, 10% first aid skills, and 10% competition. To accomplish this objective, the program utilizes a classroom type environment and outside activities to stress the importance of safety while at the beach. The program will inform the Junior Lifeguard how to properly prevent injury and respond correctly in emergency situations.
The Junior Lifeguards are in the Training Division of the Fire Department. They are provided with excellent instruction under the supervision of the Lifeguard Training Captain, Lifeguard Officer, 39 Instructors, and 6 Assistant Instructors. Each instructor is a certified Ocean Lifeguard for the City of Newport.
The A division now meet at the Newport Pier on most days, and provide extra safety to the younger JGs on competition days. This allows them to take the next step in learning our diverse beach, ocean awareness, rescue techniques, and first aid.
