NAD Water Safety Intern Opportunity

Encouraging public safety for those recreating at our projects and preventing fatalities on our lands/waters

are our primary concerns.

Water safety interns will provide educational outreach and interpretive programming, as part of a team that encourages public safety.

This includes all aspects of recreation safety on USACE lands and waters to include water, boating, bicycling, hiking, camping, and hunting.

The primary focus will be on water and boating safety for all ages with an emphasis on targeting the highest risk group of 18-35 year old males.

The primary responsibility will be educating public visitors regarding public safety through face-to-face contact.

This personal contact will take place at beaches, boat ramps, boat patrol, campgrounds, and other venues where you have direct contact with visitors.

Additionally, they will be responsible to summarize contacts and submit a monthly report.

Interns will perform a variety of tasks including developing outreach mechanisms for this target audience; updating bulletin boards; maintaining life jacket loaner stations; organizing events; conducting interpretive programs and roving interpretation; writing news releases; possibly conducting media interviews (radio); promoting USACE safety campaigns; developing public service announcements and interacting with park visitors.

Interns may be used for search and rescue and as a second (safety) person for boat patrols made by park rangers.
