  • Never swim alone or at night. Swim in areas with on-duty lifeguards.
  • Observe the surf before going in the water; look for potentially dangerous currents.
  • Non-swimmers should stay out of the water and wear life jackets if they are going to be near the water.
  • Keep non-swimming children well above the marks of the highest waves.
  • Keep an eye on children at all times; teach them never to turn their backs on the waves while they play at water’s edge.
  • Do not swim near anglers or deployed fishing lines.
  • Stay 300 feet away from fishing piers.
  • Watch out for surfers and give them plenty of room.
