A Day in the life of Kill Devil Hills Ocean Rescue: Beach Lifeguards
When it comes to the beach, the Outer Banks can offer everything from “safe” to “dangerous” in a matter of minutes. With moderate to large surf, sand bars can change, creating deadly rip currents for novice swimmers and beach goers alike. Skin burning sand and heat from the sun can turn a fun filled day on the water to complete disaster. The list goes on. This video shows what a typical day is like for our lifeguards here in Kill Devil Hills, NC. With each passing season, they get their fill of calls-to-action that range from unnecessary to the worst possible scenario. This video is a rare look inside the world of lifeguards that will change your understanding about the importance of their work and the incredible responsibility the young men and women serving in Kill Devil Hills Ocean Rescue are entrusted with.
