Rip current awareness is a serious issue considering the average 100 fatalities annually and 23,000 lifeguard rescues. This report prepared for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Rip Current Task Force, recommends powerful and cost-effective ways to promote rip current awareness to teenagers. Top recommendations include: creating an internet chat bot which provides weather forecasts, implementing classroom enhancement including programs and partnerships, and placing public service announcements. These recommendations can educate teenagers about rip currents and help save lives.
