    From March 1 to October 31, Lifeguards will mobilize and rove between ten (10) towers via ATVs, as demand, equipment maintenance, and staffing coverage allows. At no time shall a tower be unscheduled or unstaffed (“within sight distance”), during the hours of coverage from March 1 to October 31. Exceptions to this requirement are during active emergency responses, rescues when one or more lifeguards are in the water and during emergency beach evacuation
