Pine Knoll Shores to give out rip current safety koozies

PINE KNOLL SHORES, (WITN) In hopes of preventing tragedy along the coast this summer the town of Pine Knoll Shores will be giving out rip current safety drink koozies.

The town says it is repeating efforts from two years ago by giving out the koozies along with a bookmark that explains the town’s surf flag meanings.

In a couple of weeks the items will be handed out to those visiting the two major beach accesses.

They are available now at town hall and the public safety building.
