KINCARDINE, ON – The Municipality of Kincardine is pleased to announce the Beach Blazers Volunteer Program. The development of the Beach Blazers program resulted from recommendations made in the Pier Safety Ad-hoc Committee (PSAC) report received by Council in March of 2024.

Like the Trail Blazers program launched in the fall of 2023, Beach Blazers will walk the Station Beach waterfront during peak beach times, acting as ambassadors and an extra set of eyes for the Municipality.

“Beach Blazers are volunteers who will interact with our Station Beach visitors in the summer months,” commented Director of Community Services Jayne Jagelewski. “They’ll have recommendations for local services, be conducting surveys, and collecting user feedback while monitoring the area. Depending on the comment or concern, they will report it to staff, By-Law enforcement, or the Ontario Provincial Police, as appropriate.”

The Beach Blazers will begin their work at Station Beach the week of June 24th, 2024, and continue through the summer season to September 2nd, 2024. Their schedule will cover a variety of peak times throughout the weekdays and weekends.

Applications are now open online. Providing education about the role and its expectations is a key component of the training for all who volunteer. Beach Blazers will not be acting or trained as lifeguards.

For further details and questions about the program, please contact Anne-Marie Thomson, Manager of Recreation, by e-mail or call 519-396-3468 ext. 7301.
