services possible to the public using our beaches. To accomplish
this, WCBP has always sought to recruit the most qualified

lifeguards have been trained to establish and maintain the
highest standards of professional surf and open water lifesaving

The Wildwood Crest Beach Patrol operates on a basic philosophy
which is different from that of many other patrols. We strongly
believe in a system of "Preventive Lifeguarding".
This system is necessitated by the dangerous and constantly

for maintaining a "commitment to excellence" and
it will continue that basic premise. It is the responsibility
of everyone of our lifeguards to uphold its integrity through
a commitment to the profession of Lifeguarding and its traditions
in Wildwood Crest.
