• Stay at least 100 feet away from piers and jetties. Permanent rip currents often exist alongside these structures.

 

• Pay especially close attention to children and persons who are elderly when at the beach. Even in shallow water, wave action can cause loss of footing.

 

• Be cautious. Always assume rip currents are present even if you don’t see them.
