two more weekends of training
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Thirty seven Ocean Rescue Lifeguard Candidates hit the beach this past Sunday for their first training day.
The above photo shows the lifeguards conducting a 1-mile flag run from Cherie Down Park to Jetty Park so they could make a water entry from the top of a pier.
Their training for the day consisted of an introduction to the ocean/beach environment, rescue flotation devices, and water entries.
These candidates still have two more weekends of training to fulfill before they become full-fledged lifeguards protecting Brevard County beaches.
