A first round of 35 lifeguard hopefuls arrived at Main Beach on Saturday, Feb. 27, to try out for rookie and seasonal lifeguard jobs. Another group takes the plunge March 12. Top qualifiers join the city’s Ocean Lifeguard Academy, where over four weekends cadets will be trained in surf, rip current and rock rescues, CPR, stabilization of cervical spine injuries and emergency first-aid as well beach ordinances and laws.
