Wave Safe: Protect Yourself to Save Others


What if something happens to you or someone else? Keeping yourself safe while also helping others can save lives.

When you see someone else in trouble and before you act, stay calm and practice what we call "take ten". Pause to alert the lifeguards or someone on the beach and call 9-1-1. While help is coming, look for something that floats or will let you reach and assist the person in trouble while you stay safe.

The most important action you can take is to protect yourself first so you don't become the tragic second victim. To have fun and stay always respect the power of the ocean and be wave safe.
