The South Walton Fire District lifeguards take to the beaches to protect our swimmers on Saturday, March 14. This is the 10th season that the Beach Safety and Education Program, a partnership between the SWFD and the South Walton Tourist Development Council (TDC), will be in place. Staffing of the lifeguard towers will take place from March 14th – September 27th 2015.
There are a total of 28 lifeguards at 10 locations from Miramar Beach to Inlet Beach. Seven new lifeguards graduated the training program on March 13.
