Lifeguard Operations

The Sarasota County Lifeguard Service originated over thirty years ago as a volunteer organization.

Skilled professionals are now responsible for public safety at six beaches spread over a 36-mile area of the Gulf Coast. From north to south these beaches are: Lido, Siesta, Nokomis, North Jetty, Venice and Manasota.

The Lifeguard Service training of the Lifeguards maintains the “Preventative Lifeguarding” stance, which is seeing the event happen before it happens.

Sarasota County Beach Lifeguards have some of the safest beaches in the State of Florida.

The Lifeguard staff training includes passing biannual qualification testing and becoming First Responder Certified.
