Deputy Eric Alexander and Deputy Ryan Hooks knew that they could save the day! 10-21a2They loaded up everyone who couldn’t make it down the stairs into their vehicles and drove around and along the beach, but they didn’t stop there! They began escorting those who couldn’t make it down the stairs by helping them make it across the uneven beach sand into their chairs.
