Lifeguard Patrol

Mission The Lifeguard Patrol’s goal is to protect the safety of the community and its visitors on our beachfront.

Description of Services Lifeguards are responsible for the safety of the public when the Ocean Beach Park is open. The department ensures swimmers and surfers stay in appropriate areas and initiate rescues when necessary. All lifeguards must be Grade III Ocean Certified by Nassau County and CPR-FPR certified. All returning Long Beach Patrol Lifeguards must meet all of the aforementioned requirements and must re-qualify at a “run and swim” before the summer season begins.
