The final Ocean Safety Talk of the summer in Kure Beach will be held on Monday.

The weekly public safety event, which started on June 1, is held at the Ocean Front Park Pavilion in Kure Beach from 10 – 11 a.m. Discussions are led by members of Kure Beach Ocean Rescue team, who give a general overview about rip currents and what to look for, as well as an explanation of the beach flags and what each color means. The lifeguards also answer any questions people may have.

This is the first year the town has offered this service, and though it’s geared toward visitors, residents are also encouraged to attend.

While the live lifeguard talks are ending, the push for beach safety is not. The same information given during the events is also available on the Kure Beach town website, and safety brochures are available so beachgoers can keep the potentially life-saving information on hand.
