Public Outreach Offerings
As part of our goals of teaching water safety to the greatest number of children possible in the East Bay, the Lifeguard Service is venturing out into various educational online offerings. The courses we currently offer are listed below, along with a brief description. Also, please note, while we have targeted each presentation for a specific grade, each presentation can generally be modified for a grade above and below. If there is any doubt, send us a request and we'll see if we can make it work. While we prefer to offer most trainings in a live format, many can be prerecorded and played for your class as well.
If you are interested in requesting a program from a representative from the Lifeguard Service, please fill out the request form. Once filled out, we will reach out to you to finalize the scheduling details.
