Expanded Lifeguard Stand Service Through September 30

At the September 2 Town Council meeting, Interim Manager Joe Heard was given approval to enter into an amended contract with Sandski, LLC to provide four additional lifeguards from September 8 through September 30, 2020. Stands will remain at Caffey’s Inlet, Sprigtail, Schooner Ridge, and Four Seasons through September 30, 2020. The stands will be guarded from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily. Outside of the stand locations, 4 lifeguards will patrol the beach via ATV and truck from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily.

The decision to amend lifeguard services during September came after a consideration of a documented increase in the number of rental bookings in Duck. The Council will review the status of beach activities at the September 16 Mid-month meeting to determine if additional amendments are needed during the month of October.

Typical coverage in October consists of roving patrols from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. through October 31. The Duck Town Council will review the status of beach activities and discuss the need for additional services in October at the September 16, 2020 mid-month meeting.
