Beach Wheel Chairs

ADA Compliance

The City's public facilities are either all ADA compliant or a compliance plan is in place to make it so. Please let us know if you discover a problem in this regard!

For example:
  • The Community House or Guard House on Van Horne at Campbell has been equipped with an accessible elevator.
  • City Hall Auditorium and Public Safety Building Courtroom are equipped with a video/audio recording system to allow broadcast of meetings of interest to those unable to come to the meeting in person. Part of this equipment includes hearing assistive devices which are available for the asking at the sound desk at the back of the auditorium as you arrive.
  •  Some, though not all, public buildings have automated door opening systems to make easy entry for those with crutches or wheelchairs.
  • We try to make our website more accessible using the available accessibility features of the world wide web and HTML coding. (Be sure to give us some feedback if you find pages or sections that are difficult to navigate!)

We also want everyone to be able to enjoy the beach! The beaches are being made more accommodating by featuring Mobimats at the end of several of the dune crossovers, and fat-tired wheel chairs are available at Ocean Rescue HQ at the south beach near the ramp up to the Pier and Pavilion off the end of Tybrisa Street

If you need to check availability of one of these wheel chairs before heading to the beach, you can check in with the lifeguards at 912-786-9873. Off-hours or off-season, you may also contact the Fire Department administrative offices at 912-472-5062. Be aware, however, these beach wheelchairs cannot be reserved, as they are made available on a first-come-first served basis.

To check out the chairs, you will need a valid photo ID, and we ask that you fill out a survey to help us determine how and when the chairs are being used.


Mobimats provide a hard surface for wheelchairs. Our Mobimats are being extended from the end of the dune cross-over out to the hard sand at the high water mark, which will allow for even more mobility up and down the beach, especially with our beach wheelchairs. These wheelchairs are made to be easy to get into and out of and are built with fat, plastic tires to keep them from sinking into the sand. Our Triolo chair even floats!
The Mobimats are located at:
  • North Beach Mid-Lot Cross-over
  • Second Avenue Cross-over (East Gate) 
  • 16th Street (Tybrisa) Cross-over
