Staying Safe at the Beach


While it’s always beach season in Tampa Bay, more residents and tourists are flocking to our white-sand beaches. Keep these safety tips in mind for your next beach day:

– Be cautious in deep water. Don’t underestimate its depth and current.

– Always swim with a friend. They may be able to help bring you to shore, or call for help, in case of distress.

– Shuffle your feet to avoid stepping down on a stingray.

– Don’t drink and swim. Impaired swimmers may not realize when they’re tired.

– Learn CPR and basic water rescue skills. They could help you save a life.
