Beachgoers should follow guidance from lifeguards and officials. According to the National Weather Service, if you become caught in a rip current, yell for help and remain calm. Don’t exhaust yourself and if you have to swim out of a rip current, swim parallel to shore, instead of against the current, and back toward the beach when possible.
