sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as jetties and
piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards, beach patrol flags and
signs.

Entering the water is strongly discouraged. If caught in a rip
current, relax and float. Don`t swim against the current. If able,
swim in a direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape,
face the shore and call or wave for help.
