It is the purpose of the Wildwood Crest Beach Patrol to provide the most competent Lifeguarding services possible to the public using our beaches. To accomplish this, WCBP has always sought to recruit the most qualified and talented individuals and train them in the professional level that has been the standards of this organization. Our lifeguards have been trained to establish and maintain the highest standards of professional surf and open water lifesaving to maximize the public's safety.

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 changing nature of our surf, shoreline, and immense crowds of up to 90,000 per day on a busy weekend. The effectiveness of our system is dramatically reflected in our outstanding safety record.

The Wildwood Crest Beach Patrol has always had a reputation 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.
