The Ambassador Program
REVERE, MA- The Revere Beach Partnership (RBP), along with its partners the City of Revere and the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) are excited to announce the launch of RBP’s newest initiative, The Ambassador Program. This program is designed to assist in the effort of allowing beachgoers the ability to enjoy the beach safely and healthily.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had far-reaching implications and has affected every facet of life, most noticeably personal recreation. As recreation facilities and public beaches are flourishing across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, patrons must utilize these areas in a safe manner in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The Revere Beach Partnership along with its partners developed the Ambassador Program to promote and ensure the continued safe use of Revere Beach during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The Revere Beach Partnership is committed to showcasing America’s First Public Beach. We are pleased to announce The Ambassador Program which will put considerable efforts into assuring the Revere Beach experience remains a safe and enjoyable place for all despite the uncertain and unnerving times we find ourselves in” said RBP President Jeff Turco.
Funding from community sponsors and partners, including The HYM Investment Group and Save The Harbor Save The Bay, have allowed the RBP to install 16 touchless handwashing stations along Revere Beach for patrons to utilize and help prevent the spread of COVID-19. These handwashing stations will come equipped with a scannable QR code that will direct people to a webpage that contains safe use guidelines for the beach. In addition to the implementation of handwashing stations, the Revere Beach Partnership will be conducting weekly beach sanitization efforts along with a mask and children’s sand bucket giveaway. These efforts will take place each Wednesday from July 22nd through August 26th and will be limited to 25 people.
Mayor Brian Arrigo said “There’s no better place to be on a hot summer day than Revere Beach, but this summer is unlike any other and we remain focused on ensuring public health and safety. Working with DCR and Revere Beach Partnership, we’ll continue to take steps to increase awareness of safe beach practices and provide people with the resources they need to keep themselves healthy. We know now that masks are one of our strongest defenses against the spread of COVID-19 and reaching every visitor to the beach with that message, and a mask if they need one, will go a long way. I’m grateful for all the Partnership’s work to make sure people can continue to enjoy our beautiful beach, despite these unprecedented challenges.”
