Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Goldman today issued an announcement warning people about proper beach safety here at the Jersey Shore. He was joined by Tim Harmon, chief of lifeguards.
Goldman said even though Monmouth County’s beaches have been replenished, there are risks associated with that replenishment.
“We’ve had beach replenishment here as you can see with all this sand, but it could eb dangerous,” Goldman said.
Harmon said that wider beaches and hot sand can burn the feet of beachgoers and advises the wearing of footwear. Harmon said kids should wear flip flops and not dig holes on the beach.
