The Newport Beach Fire and Marine Department will conduct tryouts for
its introductory lifeguard cadet training program Sunday.
The program, designed for 15- and 16-year-olds, introduces
participants to CPR, first aid and ocean rescue skills.
The tryouts include a 1,000-meter swim and a 1,000-meter swim and run.
The scores of both the events will be combined, and the top 20 finishers
will be selected. Those selected will be paid minimum wage.
