a moderate risk of rip currents implies that individuals planning to
enter the surf should check with local beach patrols first. be sure
to swim within sight of a life guard, and never alone or at night.
always have a flotation device with you in the water.
swim near a lifeguard. if caught in a rip current, relax and float,
and do not 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.
