An Important Message About Ocean Safety
As lifeguards like to say, if in doubt, don't go out. It's always good to consult a lifeguard about ocean conditions before entering the ocean. Our ocean changes daily. A tranquil bay during the summer may turn to wild and pounding surf during winter. Here are some basic safety tips to keep in mind:
||Swim at lifeguarded beaches only.
||Spend a minimum of 20 minutes observing ocean conditions before entering the water. Waves come in sets, and the ocean may appear calm between sets of waves.
||Be observant of wet rocks. They are an indication of how far the water may run up on the beach.
||Do not fight a rip current if you get caught in one. Go with it. Wait for the current to dissipate then swim back to shore.
||Watch river mouths and stream openings for strong currents.
||Use the buddy system. Do not swim alone.
