August 22nd was the last day of Junior Lifeguard Camp for this summer. Lifeguards Writer and Henley did a superb job in teaching the students first aid, CPR, water safety, and environmental awareness. On the 30th, Guard Henley brought a small group of the Dania Beach Junior Lifeguards to a USLA Junior Lifeguard Tournament hosted by Fort Lauderdale Ocean Rescue. The group finished 7th place and were recognized by other agencies for having the most “Heart”. Parents of the Junior Lifeguards are very proud of their children and this new program. Everyone is extremely excited for this program next summer.

"This is our first year for the Junior Lifeguard Program here in Dania and we're super excited to have it! It's such a good way for the kids to learn what we do out here. The kids get to learn medical skills, rescue towards each other and it's a great fitness for them too. They're outside, they're not on video games..." ~ Alice Henley, Ocean Rescue Lifeguard, EMT.
"We're just trying to teach kids ocean awareness, environmental science and just good ocean skills to be more comfortable on the water." ~ Michael Huck, Chief of Ocean Rescue
