“We conduct annual rescue drills such as this in order to better prepare our lifeguards for every possible scenario,” Dan Santaniello, Superintendent of Recreation, said. “By involving local, county, state and federal agencies we’re able to give our lifeguards the knowledge and experience they need to keep our beaches safe.”
