The rip currents brochure and signs on this website are the product of a partnership between the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the United States Lifesaving Association (USLA). These materials represent a dedicated effort to raise awareness of rip currents and to standardize the educational message. These materials may be reprinted in their entirety, at no cost to NOAA or USLA and without permission. The steep beach signs were created by the California State Parks, Law Enforcement and Emergency Services Division, Stewards of the Coast and Redwoods, a Sonoma County nonprofit that supports state parks; and California Sea Grant, a university-based program of NOAA.
