Bill Urges for Lifeguards at PA's Public Beaches

05.23.14 | FL News Team

A Pennsylvania lawmaker says he's drafting legislation that would once again require certified lifeguards at all state parks with public beaches. Sen. Rob Teplitz  says unguarded beaches pose a safety risk. In 2008, the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources eliminated lifeguards from lake beaches at all state parks except Presque Isle State Park on Lake Erie, which remain guarded due to potential hazards related to the lake’s currents.
