Part of Galveston Island Beach Patrol’s mission is to educate the public about beach safety and be a good partner to our surrounding community. We work hard on and off the beach to spread water safety information because we understand the importance of preventing emergencies before they happen. We also appreciate the outstanding support we receive from our community and work to give back to that community in any way that we can. In an effort to fulfill this mission, we organize or participate in the various programs listed below.
