April Fool, 2014!
No, Ocracoke is not getting drone lifeguards...However:
- Iran has actually developed and tested drone lifeguards on the Caspian Sea, &
- The National Park Service is considering its policy and
might be funding lifeguards for 5 days per week. Funding for
the remaining 2 days may come from the Ocracoke Occupancy Tax. But nothing is settled yet.
