47 Graduate From North Myrtle Beach Junior Lifeguard Summer Program

On June 22, 47 people graduated from the North Myrtle Beach Junior Lifeguard summer program.
Now in its seventh year, the program is geared toward people ages 10-15 who enjoy the beach and ocean, and who want to develop ocean lifeguard skills. For successful participants, the program can also offer a path to eventual seasonal employment as one of the city's Ocean Lifeguards (age 16-plus).
The program is sponsored by the North Myrtle Beach Public Safety Department and is conducted by its Beach Patrol Officers. Several trained and experienced North Myrtle Beach Ocean Lifeguards assist in teaching the program.
This year's summer program participants engaged in fun physical exercises that encouraged them to work in teams, build confidence, and learn lifesaving skills. They also received CPR, First Aid, and other training.
Starting in January 2018, a Junior Lifeguard winter program will held at the North Myrtle Beach Aquatic & Fitness Center (AFC) .  Registration will become available at the AFC later this fall. 
For more information regarding the program, please contact Public Safety Officer May Lauzon, Beach Patrol/Lifeguard Coordinator, at melauzon@nmb.us
