Helpful tips for beach safety when moving to Hurlburt Field

  • If caught in a rip current (powerful currents of water moving away from shore), don’t fight the current. You should swim out of the current, then to shore, but if you just can’t escape it, float or tread water.
  • Pay close attention to the flag warning system; the flags are there for your safety. A red flag means high hazard due to rough waters, strong surfs, or currents, and a double red flag means the water is closed to public use.
  • Always have plenty of sunscreen, protective eye wear, wide brimmed hats, and long-sleeved swim shirts to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.
  • Drink plenty of water while playing out in the sun to prevent dehydration.
  • Never swim alone – always use the buddy system.
