Beach Safety Tips
The Brick Township Department of Parks and Recreation and the Brick Township Lifeguards would like to share the following safety tips and suggestions to help ensure your visits to our beaches are safe and fun:
- Swim only when lifeguards are on duty; never underestimate the ocean or overestimate your ability to swim in the ocean
- Swim within the designated areas only
- Parents should never leave their child unattended
- Obey all rules and posted signs
- Always listen to lifeguards; it is their job to protect you
- Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water, especially on days with excessive and oppressive heat
- Protect your skin – wear sunblock with a minimum sun protection factor of 15 anytime you expect to be exposed to the sun. Reapply as often as you need it.
- Wear eye protection. UV rays can damage eyes. Wear sunglasses that absorb at least 90 percent of UV sunlight.
- Watch for signs of heat stroke. These include red, hot and dry skin, lethargy, nausea and vomiting, weakness and dizziness. If you suspect someone is suffering from heat stroke, get the victim to a shady or cool area and call for assistance.
- Wear protection on your feet. Sand and pavement can get extremely hot in the summer sun and can burn feet.
