Specialized rescue equipment employed by lifeguards greatly help lifeguards do their jobs more efficiently. Four of the eight lifeguard towers have been placed back out on to the beach, and two replacement 4x4 trucks have been purchased and outfitted.
In the next month, all of the 8 beach towers will be getting a facelift to brighten them back to their original colorful array matching the Surfhenge surfboard arches. They will also be cleaning and polishing the white fiberglass and stainless steel. The towers will be transported in pairs and painted in the empty lot near 7th and Palm.
The lifeguard trucks have also been re-logoed with matching professional graphics representing the City of Imperial Beach and the Unified Port of San Diego.
