SF fire officials issue beach hazards warning

Fire officials in San Francisco are reminding the public to be cautious of ocean conditions when visiting beaches and coastlines this
weekend.

In a statement on social media this morning, San Francisco Fire Department officials are reminding the public to stay away from cliffs, stay
off of rocks and to watch pets.

Anyone in or near the water is urged to be mindful of cold water hypothermia, shore breaks, rip currents and to never turn their back on the
ocean.

Anyone who gets caught in a rip current is reminded not to fight it, but instead swim out of the current and then to shore. If caught in a
current and unable to escape, people are urged to float or tread water, then call or wave for assistance if in need of help, fire officials said.fireOcean BeachSFFDwarning
