Have Fun and Be Safe at the Beach
Learning about potential hazards before hitting the water can save your life. Dangerous currents occur throughout the Great Lakes but are most frequent along Lake Michigan. Rip currents can pull a swimmer away from the shore. Swimming directly against rip currents, along piers, or breakwalls can be deadly. Also, attempting to rescue others without a flotation device can result in drowning.
- Learn about water safety tips, including how you can protect your friends and family.
- Tap into National Weather Service data about the locations of fatalities and rescues in Michigan and other areas in the region.
- Help raise awareness about the fact that children and young men are at risk.
