On 9/13/2016 six people spoke in support for Palm Beach County Ocean Rescue to be reclassified into the Special Risk Classification at the Palm Beach County commission meeting.
They explained why lifeguards are deserving of special risk retirement benefits (The same benefits as Firefighters, EMT's & Law Enforcement Officers). They urged the commission to sign the form authorizing the state to give special risk retirement benefits for Palm Beach County lifeguards.
The county attorney and county administrator urged the commission not to sign the form.
This page is to help bring the public to recognize & support Open H20 Lifeguard/EMT's in getting the same Special Risk Status as Firefighters, EMT's & LEO.
