Tips For Beach Safety

Going to beach with family and friends is surely a time to be enjoyed in way that the memories stay etched in your mind for the rest of your life. Clear Sunny day, low tide, and ample of space to run around on the beach; these are few things that will ensure that the setting is perfect. However there are few things that we should not forget in between all the fun and frolic. This might not sound too good but its fact that beaches are very unsafe if full care is not taken. Ocean, no matter how calm it looks, its power and unpredictability should never be underestimated. 

Following are few tips that you should always remember when you are on the beach.

1 . Always be aware of the Ocean conditions. Never judge for yourself. Ask a lifeguard as they are professionally trained to identify any hazards.

2. Do not swim where rip currents are present, especially if you are not a trained swimmer. And if you are caught in one, try to swim parallel to the shore until the pull stops. Then swim back to the shore. If you are not able to make it to the beach, alert the people around and the lifeguard by treading water and wave.

3. Never stand showing your back to the ocean when you are standing on the edge. You never know when a tide gets formed behind your back and sweeps you away.

4. It is highly highly recommended that you learn swimming before entering the waters. And even if you know swimming, make sure that some is around you when you are swimming.

5. Alcohol is a strict no no. Never drink and swim. Alcohol impairs your judgement making, coordination and balance. It also reduces your ability to stay warm.

6. Always wear bright coloured clothes when swimming. In case of emergency, people on the beach should be able to notice you even from a distance.

Keep these in mind and other instructions that you are told by the life guards. Uncertainty is synonymous with ocean, so take precautions.
