 Beach Lifeguard Training

    The Santa Barbara County Lifeguards do annual in house training and regular in-service trainings to perfect their craft. Each lifeguard is required to show proficiency in all aspects of aquatic safety, first aid and emergency response. Lifeguards have partnered and trained with the Santa Barbara County Fire Department, Stations 11 (water rescue) and 41, as well as the US Coast Guard and Calstar 7. The County Lifeguard training is certified by the United States Lifesaving Association, and we are proud members of the California Surf Lifesaving Association.
