More Lifeguards Hired for Summer

(KHNL)- Ocean safety will add on 21 more people for the summer season on the South Shore.

They say there's a lot more people at the beach- from out of school students, to high season visitors, to surfers attracted to the big waves. That combined with the big South Shore swells can make for a dangerous situation.

Beachgoers appreciate the increased staffing. 18 of those people are part time hires, just for the summer.

Also, the City Council budget committee is considering approving funding for 10 more full time lifeguard positions.
