Each year, The Galveston Island Beach Patrol strives to reach as many school aged children and youth in Galveston and the surrounding area as possible.
Our message is simple:
- Avoid Rip Currents – Stay away from rock jetties and piers
- Swim Near A Lifeguard
- Never Swim Alone
- Obey Warning Signs and Flags
- Take Sun and Heat Precautions
- Feet First, First Time
Presentations vary from 45 minutes to 1 hour and are informative, educational, and dynamic. Teachers are encouraged to access engaging water safety educational activities here and supporting educational materials here.
