Beach Patrol Committee
Committee Chair: David Taylor
MBA Beach Patrol Supervisor: Justin Voorheis
The Middlesex Beach Patrol (MBP) is responsible for monitoring the beach and ocean while on duty. In addition to watching for ocean goers that may need assistance, they also oversee surf and weather conditions and clear the ocean and/or the beach when weather dictates. The Beach Patrol also runs the junior lifeguard program. As part of the community, they host a beach picnic several times during the season.
