JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. -- With the weather warming up and as the summer approaches more and more people are flocking to the beach.
For the 102nd year, the American Red Cross Volunteer Life Savings Corps is patrolling Jacksonville Beach.
There were 41 volunteers working at the beach Sunday and the lifeguards report a calm day, a great day for swimmers.
They do have some advice for those who plan on coming out to Jacksonville Beach to enjoy the surf.
"Always swim in front of a life guard," said First Mate Tommy Cassaro. "That's the best advice we could ever give someone."
Cassaro said when someone does find themselves in a rip current to remain calm and let the current bring you out and to swim parallel to shore.
