Does your Beach need Professional Beach Management?
Swimming in the ocean is different from swimming in a pool. The water is always moving in the ocean and you have to be prepared for and know how to navigate the waves. Beach safety is crucial, and takes different considerations. As a World Leader in open water management and beach management, our First Response team must maintain focus, athleticism and professional training that is acquired through years of education and experience.
The rigors of this vast, untamed environment requires that your service provider be prepared to build management controls that prevent, protect and respond to every emergency that can be a part of daily life while swimming in open waters. The facets of Beach management encompasses emergency response and coordination, identifying changing weather patterns and surf conditions, wildlife control and response, hot weather related threats, and everything that survivalists endure with mother nature. The challenges that these risks present will be handled through the commitment to management processes and controls established through four decades of service. We invite you to a new standard of beach management excellence.
The primary basis of Beach and Open Water Safety, combined with awareness and understanding of the hazards, can boost enjoyment of open water and considerably lessen the number of incidents that occur each year.
Beach Management Safety Tips
Below are some safety tips that will be useful the next time you go to the beach;
- Swim only at a lifeguard protected beach. Lifeguards are there to ensure everyone is swimming within the designated area which is extremely important, especially for those swimmers who are unfamiliar with the particular beach. They help protect beach-goers and are there to perform the important task of saving lives if necessary.
- Follow the rules to keep the potentially dangerous situations at a minimum. Don’t go outside designated swimming areas and always be mindful of the tide.
- Never swim alone. Some people who live on or near a beach swim there frequently, and often go out by themselves. This is simply not safe. Anything can happen in the best of conditions, and having someone with you will help save your life.
- Check the weather conditions before going out in the water. The weather can change without notice, so keep a watch on the sky and pay close attention to the waves. It only takes a second to get into trouble, so the more conscientious you are, the better.
- Always swim sober. Every year people drown because they made the bad decision to go out on the water while intoxicated. Someone who is under the influence of alcohol or other mind altering substances cannot make good, sound decisions and will not have the quick reaction time to get out of or avoid trouble. Likewise, don’t let other people in your party swim while under the influence either.
- Consider your energy level before swimming long distances. While you might be able to get out to a certain rock or point in the water, you’ll need enough energy to swim back to shore.
- The ocean can be a fun place for a swimmer, but it can also be quite scary and dangerous. Use good judgment and keep a watch on other people out on the water. You never know when a helping hand might be needed.
