Beach Wheelchair Program

The City of Isle of Palms offers daily use of beach wheelchairs at no charge.  Use of a beach wheelchair is on a first-come, first-serve basis. No reservations are taken. Beach wheelchairs are located at the Public Safety Building, located at 30 J.C. Long Boulevard, Isle of Palms, SC 29451. 

Beach wheelchairs are available from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. They must be returned no later than 8:00 p.m. the day of the rental. The IOP Fire Department does not pick up or deliver beach wheelchairs.

How to Use a Beach Wheelchair:

Citizens interested in renting a beach wheelchair must submit a Beach Wheelchair Rental Form in person on the second floor at the Public Safety Building, Police Department side. The form is available on site. The Communications Specialist on duty will make a copy of the renter's drivers license and credit card. 

The beach wheelchair will be available at the Fire Department Apparatus Bay at 30 JC Long Boulevard. 

If the beach wheelchair is not returned, the City will charge the cost of replacement to the credit card on file. The cost to replace the beach wheelchair is $3,000.
