City upgrades beach safety website

Advertiser Staff

The city's Ocean Safety and Lifeguard Services Division today announced the launch of a new beach safety website.

The site www.hawaiibeachsafety.org provides such features as an interactive beach site scroll-over, a translator for 52 languages and active alerts.

The site also offers information on hurricane, tsunami and earthquake preparation and response.

"Our previous website was a little outdated and did not completely serve the purpose of providing the public with timely and accurate information," Ocean Safety operations chief Jim Howe said in a statement.

"These upgrades will provide the public added ease and efficiency in selecting a beach where they can have a safe and enjoyable time."
