A Rescue Buoy at Wilmington Beach
Watersports, island hopping, diving and jetskiing are just some of
the activities to enjoy on water. Especially in North Carolina, beaches
are everywhere and people keep coming in to get a feel of the state’s
natural beauty that safety is always the first to be thought of.
The best icon to speak of safety in North Carolina is the rescue buoy.
First, the beaches are all around the place. Second, it has saved many
Lifeguards are required to have a rescue buoy. Sometimes it is
tube-like, sometimes it is round. They are like vests worn in whitewater
rafting and most popularly, they are seen on TV shows like “Baywatch”.
And that is good actually - Safety first before fun. If fun would have
gone first, then there would be more paranoia and risks that no one
would like to experience.
The rescue buoy is unbelievably life-saving. It is a long foam
usually made of vinyl and is buoyant enough to support the full
weight of the
lifeguard or rescuer and victims. It has a long string that is worn
around the body
to support the lifeguard when striding on the water while searching
for the victims.
It is incredibly useful to rescuers and people who are saved. Imagine
without it and you would wonder how beachgoers will be saved.
This is an
invention so great for any concerned individual. There will be no
worries but that
doesn’t mean too that people have to be relaxed.
Like mentioned, safety first before fun. And safety doesn’t always
have to be the responsibility of
lifeguards; it is the major responsibility of a beachgoer to take
care of himself. Otherwise, do not
attempt to challenge the water and be sorry later.
North Carolina is a “safety first” believer. The rescue buoys are
produced and purchased to give peace of mind to everyone who wish to
have fun. Lifeguards are very friendly and are always ready to assist.
Feel free to visit the beaches and be ensured that safety is always
