ITEM NO. 26



Question: Councillor B. Dennehy

"To ask the Chief Executive to put measures in place to have the North Beach

Rush manned with life guard coverage this coming summer in anticipation of the

North beach receiving a good water test report on completion of the Rush

Sewage network scheme?"

Reply:

The recruitment and selection process for employment of Temporary Beach

Lifeguards for the Bathing season 2018 will begin in February 2018. Rostering of

lifeguards to beaches takes account of specific requirements for a particular

beach (i.e. if additional lifeguards are required) and also the usage and

demographic of that beach, and the appropriate number of lifeguards is

rostered accordingly. In addition, factors such as Bank Holidays, and any local

events such as festivals will be included when drawing up rosters.

We endeavour to have the maximum lifeguard coverage available across the

widest spread of beaches throughout the Bathing Season.
