Laconia lacks lifeguards for lakefront beaches

July 6, 2019

LACONIA, N.H. (AP) — The New Hampshire city of Laconia is having a hard time finding lifeguards for its lakefront beaches this summer.

Currently it doesn’t have any lifeguards at its beaches on Lake Winnipesaukee and Lake Opechee because no one has applied for the jobs.

WMUR-TV reports that city officials are concerned as they try to fill 13 jobs to be fully staffed at three public beaches. Laconia is offering to pay for lifeguard training to attract applicants.

Signs are posted at Weirs Beach, Bond Beach and Opechee Point telling people they are swimming at their own risk.
