The Kure Beach Ocean Rescue operates under the command of the Kure Beach Fire Department. They have a seasonal staff of 32 lifeguards, including the head guard and 4 Captain and respond to all public safety emergencies along the beach including both ocean rescue calls and medical calls. All of the staff is trained to a minimum of First Responder and several members are Emergency Medical Technicians. They have an excellent working relationship with the Kure Beach Police Department, and closely work alongside the Carolina Beach Ocean Rescue Department.
Kure Beach is guarded 7 days a week between Memorial Day and Labor Day, between the hours of 10 A.M. and 5 P.M. We operate 9 tower locations, spread out evenly along the 3 miles of beach strand in Kure Beach.
The Kure Beach Ocean Rescue program is a recognized agency of the USLA (United States Lifesaving Association). USLA is a professional association of beach lifeguards and open water rescuers. USLA works to reduce the incidence of death and injury in the aquatic environment through public education, national lifeguard standards, training programs, promotion of high levels of lifeguard readiness and other means.
