Pictured last Monday, August 1, at Carson Beach is “Team Southie” from the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) which competed against other DCR lifeguard teams from the Nahant and Revere beaches. The annual event featured life-saving techniques and distance swimming, giving the lifeguards the opportunity to show off their skills, but more importantly, to hone these lifeguard skills so they can serve and keep the public safe in an optimum manner.
