Oregon Coast Safety

The national Sea Grant College Program of the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration made a really useful Safety pamphlet that we recommend that you download and print out. Download Oregon Coast Safety Pamphlet.

Here is a safety summary from the above mentioned pamphlet:

Never turn your back on the surf.

If you play in the surf, pick the right place and time.

Use only safe, marked trails to the beach.

Don’t let children explore alone on beach, surf, rocks, or sand dunes.

Fires on beaches fronting state parks and waysides are subject to state park rules.

Outside state park boundaries, recreational fires are permitted downwind and away from drift logs and beach or dune grass.

Put out fires with wet sand or water when you leave.

Use the buddy system when swimming, exploring, or beachcombing. Let someone know where you’re going and when you plan to return.

Check regulations, tides, and weather conditions before driving, hiking, swimming, or boating.
