Beaches to have reduced staffing, hours for season's end

There will be a reduced number of lifeguards on duty at Fairfield's beaches for the remainder of the season, the Parks and Recreation Department has announced, because some of the staff will be returning to school.
There also will be reduced hours for Penfield Pavilion and the boat houses at Penfield and Jennings beaches.
Lifeguards will be on duty at Jennings and Penfield beaches and Lake Mohegan through Sunday, Aug. 26, but there will be no lifeguards from Monday, Aug. 27, through Friday, Aug. 31. Lifeguards will be on duty at these beaches from Saturday, Sept. 1, through Monday, Sept. 3, for Labor Day weekend, but there will be no lifeguards for the remainder of the season after Labor Day.
Southport, Sasco and South Pine Creek beaches will not be staffed for the rest of the season starting Monday, Aug. 20, and the swimming areas will be reduced to between red flags posted at the shoreline.
Swimming will be "at your own risk" at beaches where no lifeguards are on duty, officials said. READ MORE: http://www.fairfieldcitizenonline.com/news/article/Beaches-to-have-reduced-staffing-hours-for-3796028.php
