Hot summers on the Emerald Coast draw thousands of tourists, locals and Air Commandos to the sandy beaches here every year; eager swimmers ready to enjoy the mysteries of the cool blue-green water should take caution.

"Swimmers, beginner and advanced, should always be aware of flag conditions, rip currents and dangerous marine life when entering the water," said Master Sgt. Jeremy Linville, 1st Special Operations Wing ground safety superintendent.

Familiarizing oneself with beach flag conditions can help Airmen and their families determine if they should make the trip to the beach at all.

"Florida summers have some of the hottest days of the year," said Senior Airman Bo Hume, Hurlburt Field sports director. "Anything from dehydration to knee injury could happen when the proper precautions aren't taken such as stretching or drinking water. Hydrating will help prevent most injuries because your muscles will have enough water to avoid cramping."
