takes beachgoers’ safety to the next level
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Brevard County Ocean Rescue, in cooperation with Brevard County Information Technology, has launched an innovative mobile website that takes ensuring beachgoers’ safety to the next level.
Rip current, severe weather, marine life, sun and heat are all factors that visitors to Brevard County beaches need to be educated about and prepared to understand so everyone has an enjoyable visit to the Space Coast.
Brevard County Ocean Rescue – named 2013 Beach Patrol of the Year in Florida — is proud to now offer a beach safety website that is easily accessible from mobile devices.
Visit Brevardcounty.us/beachsafety To Access Information On:
• Surf forecast
• Rip current warnings
• Hours and locations of Brevard County’s lifeguard towers, with clickable maps
• Beach safety tips touching on marine life, warning flags, lightning, sun and sand and rip currents
• Brevard County Fire Rescue and Brevard County Ocean Rescue’s social media accounts
“Brevard County Ocean Rescue is excited to launch our new mobile website,” said Ocean Rescue Chief Jeff Scabarozi.
“This addition to the organization will not only save lives, but give great information to the residents, visitors and tourists who visit Brevard County’s beautiful beaches.”
One of the most important things beachgoers can do is make sure they swim and play on the beach near a lifeguard. This ensures someone is watching the conditions and the weather and can communicate safety messages.
Be sure to check in with lifeguards when you arrive at the beach and ask about conditions before entering the water.
