Be Safe at the Beach & In The Water This Summer

We all love going to the beach in the summer time, and in Florida, sometimes all year round! We are known for our beaches, but they can come with Rip Currents, or Riptides.

So, what happens if you start drifting out to sea? Here are some tips from The National Weather Service on what to do!

  • Check water conditions before going in by looking at the local beach forecast before you leave for the beach and talking to the lifeguard at the beach.

  • Only swim at a beach with lifeguards. The chances of drowning at a beach with lifeguards are 1 in 18 million (U.S. Lifesaving Association).

  • Don't assume! Great weather for the beach does not always mean it's safe to swim or even play in the shallows. Rip currents often form on calm, sunny days.

  • Rip currents aren't the only deadly beach hazard. Learn more about dangerous waves and other hazards and why you should never to turn your back on the ocean.
