There's a 360 degree view of Huntington Beach and the neighboring beaches. Tower Zero is kind of the epicenter for lifeguards on the beach, assisting in communication, in rescue procedures and helping distribute resources. There are usually two people staffing the tower from 10 am to about 6 p.m. Then it goes down to one person before and after that time.  The purpose of this tower is a communications center that is away from Lifeguard Headquarters.


Consistently ranking as some of the top lifeguards in the nation, the Huntington Beach Marine Safety Division has held a long and distinguished history as one of the premier lifeguards services. For instance, Tower Zero itself was dedicated in to Max Bowman, who began his career as a lifeguard in Huntington Beach in 1954. Before he retired from his job in 1990, Bowman was considered an ambassador to world lifesaving. Helping to transform Huntington Beach into a year round professional marine safety operation, he spoke in favor of programs such as Junior Lifeguards training camps, preventive safety operations and acquisition of Huntington Beach beaches to the control of city government. 


The next time you stroll on the Huntington Beach Pier, be sure to stop at Tower Zero to look at the dedication plaque, and read the water temps and weather conditions that are posted daily. If you look up into the tinted glass windows of the lifeguard tower, you'll often see one or two lifeguards keeping watch over the beach as shown in the video above.
