Rip Currents & Safety (Watch Video Below)
RIP CURRENTS are powerful currents of water moving away from the shore, capable of sweeping even the strongest swimmers out to sea and are often called "killer currents" for a good reason.  Although estimates vary, rip currents are responsible for approximately 150 deaths every year in the US and likely thousands worldwide.  Through raising awareness and increasing understanding, we seek to dramatically reduce the number of fatalities from this lurking danger.  For more information about rip currents and beach safety, please visit www.ripcurrents.com and www.healthybeaches.org
