Panama City Beach to add lifeguards at the following locations:
—The Pier Park beachfront.
— The M.B. Miller county pier, at the foot of Alf Coleman Road.
In addition the city will examine updating the existing Beach ordinance that requires lifeguard training for licensed beach vendors. The review will consider possible changes to reflect training and equipment requirements that are more effective than the existing rules. The city also will begin exploring open-surf lifeguard training for members of its Beach Patrol and other public safety officials who come into contact with beach-goers.
Pay attention to the surf conditions when you are visiting Panama City Beach. Be safe!
