Michigan Sea Grant is working with MDNR to install Beach Safety Kits at 10 public parks this summer. These kits are modeled after similar kits in the Upper Peninsula. Kit components include emergency rescue equipment and water safety tools.
Proposed State Park Locations for Beach Safety Kits in Michigan:
Warren Dunes, Holland, Grand Haven, Ludington, Hoffmaster, Mears, Muskegon, Van Buren, Petoskey, Wilderness
One of the long-term goals is to provide the same water safety and rescue equipment at each public park in Michigan in the statewide effort to improve safety at Michigan’s beaches.
