Since the San Clemente Lifeguard Department’s founding in 1931, more than 2,000 men and women have served as City of San Clemente lifeguards. Collectively, they have saved hundreds of thousands of lives. Their expertise and dedication to making sure everyone has a safe day at the beach has led to San Clemente being known as one of southern California’s safest beaches.
This page is dedicated to the recognition and celebration of our former lifeguards’ many years of service in keeping our beach safe and their remarkable stories.
Check back soon for alumni stories, event information, and other information.
Sadly, many of our former lifeguards are no longer with us. Click Here for our In Remembrance page. We celebrate the lives and memories of those who have passed on.
