Please be aware that you will be helping at your own risk, covered only by your own liability insurance. In the event of severe weather, participants will be asked to evacuate the beach. Lifeguards at both Ocean City and Assateague State Park go into the stands at 10am. Participants should not enter the ocean any deeper than the knee when lifeguards are not on duty. A safety coordinator will be located at each site with a detailed safety plan. In the event of an emergency, please notify the safety coordinator at your site.
