Atlantic Beach Ocean Rescue

The Atlantic Beach Ocean Rescue organization operates under an Advanced Certification from the United States Lifesaving Association. Members are certified in emergency medical services, and they are capable of providing advanced levels of first aid in emergencies.

The staffing of lifeguards on the beach is seasonal, but the core leadership of the organization is comprised of long term, dedicated individuals. Selection and training are high priorities, especially during the spring months. During the summer, lifeguards staff and patrol the beach on a daily basis, providing guidance and direction relative to hazardous conditions, marine animals, and first aid.

The Atlantic Beach Ocean Rescue organization participates in training and professional competitions with other lifeguard organizations throughout the region, the state, the country, and the world.
