Santa Teresa Lifeguards

Our organization was born in 2015 as a community response to 2 incidents that resulted in 3 drowning deaths on our beaches. Currently our community is one of the most important tourist and surfing destinations. Our currents, tides and strong waves can cause problems for even the most experienced swimmer or surfer. So we have a huge responsibility to keep our beaches safe.
