Emergency Situations

In case of vehicle accidents or injuries, contact a ranger or attempt to radio ranger base on CB radio, channel 9. An emergency solar-powered call-box is located at the entrance to Sand Highway. Do not move an injured person unless he is in immediate danger.

If your vehicle becomes stuck, you might try the following:

    * Drop your tire pressure, but don't go below 15 lbs PSI.
    * Dig out the sand from around your tires.
    * Recruit some friends and — keeping the front wheels straight — push and drive your vehicle either forward or backward. Don't allow your wheels to spin, this will dig you in deeper.
    * Beach towing is available if needed.

Dangerous currents, called rip currents, are caused by the combination of wave action and the shape of the shoreline. Should you become caught in a rip current while swimming, don't try to swim against the current. Swim parallel to the shore until you're out of the rip. Then make your way to shore. There is lifeguard service available at Oceano Dunes SVRA June through Labor Day.
