2016 Beach Patrol Annual Tryout Information
Waiver for Lifeguard Test and Practice
The Longport Beach Patrol is looking forward to the Summer of 2015 and seeing everybody once again. Remember to always swim at guarded beaches during beach hours of operation. Safe Beaches are Happy Beaches.
The Longport Beach Patrol is gearing up for another wonderful summer season. Please note that all Guarded Bathing Beaches are open from 10am until 6pm on each day of operation.
Beach patrons are reminded to swim only near a lifeguard during guarded bathing beach hours of operation. Please follow the direction of your lifeguards. They are trained professionals and have experience and are knowledgeable of the ocean water conditions. Pay close attention to the "Beach Warning Flags" atop the lifeguard stands. They are posted as a guidance system based on the current ocean water conditions:
Green - Safe
Yellow - Caution
Red - Hazardous, and Red with No Swimming Sign - Bathing Restricted - No Swimming!
Please don't forget your beach badges. Badges are required for all beach patrons over the age of 12. Beach inspectors are required to check everyone for beach badges, please have them with you when you come to the beach.
Help keep Longport's beaches as beautiful as they have always been, place all trash and recyclables in appropriate receptacles. Longport’s Public Works Department takes great pride in keeping our beaches clean and well groomed, please help to do the same.
