Monday afternoon two of Corolla's excellent ocean rescue lifegaurds pulled 2 people from the water.  The rescue was reported in the Daily Advance.  It is a great opportunity to realize how important it is to be safe when in the ocean.  The more time you spend around water and particularly the ocean, the more you come to respect its power.  Simple steps and being aware help keep you safe in the water. 

 A particular hazard along the ocean is the possibilityof rip currents.  There is an excellent resource available by the EENA Project, that explains, what is a rip current?  Once you realize what a rip current is, you have the ability to detect them from shore and know what to do if you should be caught in one. 

Simple steps can go a long way to ensuring a fun day in the water.
