Hello NBTA members –
As summer winds down, now is a good time to give a special thanks to the men and women who protect North Beach families, friends and visitors on a daily basis as we enjoy our beautiful beaches. We’re talking about members of the Long Beach Township Beach Patrol (LBTBP). This skilled, motivated and highly trained group of professionals keep us safe while we enjoy our beautiful beaches and ocean.
This photo is a shot of the North End crew. They guard and protect North Beach and Loveladies and rotate chairs throughout the summer. While we play, they are constantly scanning the water for potential signs of trouble or swimmers in need of assistance.
As one of the nation’s largest beach patrols, LBTBP sets rigorous standards that exceed the requirements set by the New Jersey State Department of Health for ocean lifeguards.
So, the next time you see one of the North End crew – whose passion is to keep us safe – say hello and a great big THANK YOU!
