“Third Coast Ocean Force” defined

The Great Lakes Surf Rescue Project’s tagline for the rip current awareness campaign is, “Third Coast Ocean Force”.

The Great Lakes are referred to as the “Third Coast” of the United States and the “Third Coast” can have “Ocean Force” rip currents when there are waves.

Each “Water Safety Surf Rescue” class will provide an opportunity to promote rip current awareness through the classroom as well as media opportunities. In addition, the GLSRP issues alerts to our media contacts when there are forecasts for waves and rip currents.
