Clearwater Beach lifeguards ramp up to accommodate increasing visitors

Clearwater Beach has grown in popularity in recent years and the beach’s lifeguards are adjusting. Since 2003, the number of visitors has increased by almost 8 percent, from about 880,000 to 955,000. As a response, the city has increased lifeguard hours between March 1 and Labor Day by two hours, from 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. instead of 4:30 p.m. During the rest of the year, lifeguard duty still ends at 4:30 p.m. (August 27, 2014) [Douglas R.
