• State Lifeguards and Monterey Fire Department Team Up on Water Rescue Efforts

    In June 2014, the Monterey Fire Department teamed up with the California State Parks in order to provide better water rescue services. Previously, the Harbormaster’s office managed the State Park Lifeguard contract. It was determined that the program would be better managed through the Fire Department for mutual response and better understanding of daily operations as well as providing public education about ocean safety. Additionally, the mutual cooperation can help both agencies find ways to improve Monterey’s marine safety program and will allow an expanded program to cover jurisdictions such as Pacific Grove, Carmel, and Sand City. The State Lifeguards have been visiting local schools and stepping up patrols over the past spring break in order to reduce ocean drowning.
