Lifeguards added to Frisco beach for summer tourist season
FRISCO, N.C. (AP) — The Cape Hatteras National Seashore is adding lifeguard services at one popular beach for the busy summer tourist season.
Seashore officials say lifeguards will be stationed at the Frisco Day Use Area starting Memorial Day weekend and going through Labor Day. Lifeguards will be on duty from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days a week.
David Hallac is superintendent of the National Parks of Eastern North Carolina. He says the Frisco beach is appropriate for the fourth area with lifeguards because it’s popular and has a large parking area, a boardwalk and restrooms.
Other seashore locations with lifeguards are: Coquina Beach Day Use Area on Bodie Island; Cape Hatteras Lighthouse Beach; and Ocracoke Beach Day Use Area.
