Lifeguards

Watch the Water

The Lifeguard Division of the Los Angeles County Fire Department recently completed back to back Ocean Lifeguard Training Academies in May and June. The academy graduated 68 new Ocean Lifeguards just in time for the busy summer season. The rookies are already in the towers, on the sand, “watching the water”, and performing rescues to keep the citizens of Southern California safe on the beaches of Los Angeles County. Check out the latest video from Turnout to see how hard they must train to join the best of the best.
