Rip Currents 101 and Cowell Beach Death

Video.  Share these Rip Current videos with your friends who like to go to the Beach.

Local CERT trainer, Michelle Dragony, has curated 3 videos that will bring you up to speed.

If you see someone who is not paying attention, or does not seem to understand the danger,
do take the time, to gently nudge them with the fact that at least one person dies every year at our beaches.
Drowning can happen with one wave.
