Rescue Assist 


The Santa Barbara County Lifeguards are making a presence at the County Parks as the ones who can be counted on for help.  We are constantly making an effort to better ourselves so that you will receive a higher level of care in your time of need.  The success of our Lifeguard Program has been made possible through our various partnerships with other rescue agencies, non-profits in our community, and the enthusiasm of our lifeguards.  Our mission is to provide you with a safe and relaxing day at our beaches and pools.

Our staff consists of 35 seasonal Lifeguards; most are EMT’s and the rest have achieved their American Red Cross Emergency Response First Aid (Title 22) and CPR/AED First Responder certification for the Professional Rescuer. We guard three beaches and two pool facilities with 14 lifeguards on duty.
