Employee Profile

You’re well on your way to joining the hundreds of other highly motivated individuals that the Long Beach Township Beach Patrol has employed.

Each year nearly two hundred lifeguards employees protect our twelve miles of ocean beach and nearly one hundred beach badge checkers walk those same beaches, collecting the season’s beach-use fees. As one of the nations largest beach patrols, LBTBP sets rigorous standards that exceed the requirements set by the New Jersey State Department of Health for ocean lifeguards.

LBTBP offers competitive pay, an extensive competition program and training in American Red Cross Emergency Medical Response, which includes CPR For the Professional Rescuer, AED (Automated External Defibrillation), AEO (Administering Emergency Oxygen), and PDT (Preventing Disease Transmission), through our staff of certified instructors. There are age requirements of minimally sixteen years old to lifeguard or fourteen years of age to badge check.

In addition, as you gain experience you’ll have the opportunity to advance to higher pay steps, officer positions or participating in our Personal Water Craft (PWC) Rescue Team or Lifeguard in Training (LIT) programs. 

All you need to get started is the same underlying passion that attracts other highly motivated individuals to LBTBP!
