August 30 is National Beach Day. It’s about more than having fun though. We also need to focus on safety and preserving our beaches.
HOW TO OBSERVE #NationalBeachDay
A few safety tips include”
- Only swim in designated areas.
- Never swim alone.
- Whether you’re in the ocean, a lake or a river, watch the currents.
- Don’t swim longer than you’re capable.
- Learn CPR
Learn how to survive a riptide. Don’t swim against the current. Relax. Swim parrallel to the shore until you leave the riptide.
You can also organize a group to clean a section of your favorite beach. If you don’t have time for that, you can pick some trash up on your own.
I hope you are able to enjoy your favorite beach soon.
