COVID-19 PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES

 

East Hampton Volunteer Ocean Rescue (EHVOR) has worked with East Hampton's Town and Village Lifeguard Agencies to revise rescue techniques to protect both the victim and rescuer. Our dedicated team will continue to train and utilize these techniques throughout the pandemic.  

We are working with the Police and Fire Departments to adapt new protocols when contacting and treating medical aids. We are aware of the new United States Lifesaving Association (USLA) precautions regarding Covid-19. We will provide masks to all our rescuers and have directed them to wear face coverings when making public contact.  We are committed and will continue to stay informed as new information becomes available. We will remain on-call to protect beaches in the Town and Village of East Hampton.
