Last call for summer beach season

August 24, 2011

Deer Lake Beach is wrapping up the season, with 12-5 p.m. hours through Sept. 2, then 11 a.m.-7 p.m. during Labor Day weekend. Sept. 5 is the beach's last day.

Beach staff includes eight supervisors and 14 lifeguards, all trained in First Aid, CPR with rescue breathing, Automated External Defibrillator (AED), spinal injury management and water rescue.

"The lifeguards train on a regular basis and maintain a very high level of responsiveness," says Beach Director Bobby Nelson. "The lifeguards make it a point to be friendly with patrons and to get to know them."
