From saving lives to giving out simple directions, Myrtle Beach Fire Department’s Ocean Rescue team helped 6,000 people last year.
As it prepares for another round of it this summer, the crews are loading an extra piece of gear into the trucks.
Myrtle Beach Fire Rescue is going to be “shoveling” in some knowledge all summer long, by quizzing kids at the beach about safety tips, and handing out an Ocean Rescue bucket and shovel set if they get it right.
“That was my first time,” said Quinn Webb as he and his family packed up to leave the beach. “And this is my first time holding a seashell.”
Webb had plenty of firsts to scratch off the list on his first beach trip ever while his family is visiting from New York.
For Webb, the best part was the water.
