The Del Mar Lifeguards are a group of hard working individuals who continually watch out for the safety of both the local community and tourists throughout the year. As a way to say thanks, Life+Gear donated $1500 worth of products to help the entire team out. We are proud to support a team of individuals who work hard to protect our community! Thank you, Del Mar Lifeguards!

 

San Diego Lifeguards would like to remind you of the following safety guidelines when at the beach:

 

-Learn to swim

 

-Swim near a lifeguard

 

-Never swim alone

 

-Supervise children closely, even when lifeguards are present

 

-Don't rely on flotation devices, such as rafts or inner-tubes. Even US Coast Guard -approved life jackets are not a substitute for swimming ability

 

-If caught in a rip current, swim sideways until free, don't swim against the current's pull

 

-Do not swim while under the influence of illicit drugs, medications that may cause impairment or alcohol

 

-Protect your head, neck and spine -- don't dive into unfamiliar waters -- feet first, first time

 

-If you are in trouble, call or wave for help

 

-Follow regulations and lifeguard directions

 

-Swim parallel to shore if you wish to swim long distances

 

-Scuba dive only if trained and certified -- and within the limits of your experience and training

 

-Report hazardous conditions to lifeguards or other beach management personnel

 

-Stay clear of coastal bluffs, they can collapse and cause injury

 

-Never turn your back to the ocean -- you may be swept off coastal bluffs or tide pool areas by waves that can come without warning
