Monmouth County, NJ develops game changing beach condition database for you
🏖 Monmouth County government launches Beach Public Safety Dashboard
🏖 It will give you up to the minute beach and surf conditions
🏖 This is an expansion of the 'Know Before You Go' beach program
You'll be able to see what's going on at the beach and in the water in Monmouth County before you even leave your house or hotel this summer.
Monmouth County Commissioners have announced the launching of a Beach Public Safety Dashboard which will provide you with what you need to know before you go.
"Beaches are packed and I think this gives the people an idea on what the conditions are from rip currents, the weather, the water temperature, and then it's also going to give, in certain beaches, some beach badge information and also answer some parking questions," Monmouth County Commissioner Director Tom Arnone said.
This Beach Public Safety Dashboard will also give you the lifeguard schedule for when they'll be at a given beach, wave heights, aquatic risks like rip current locations, and more all up to the minute.
It's a game changer for beachgoers and a historic one too.
"We're going to be the first county in the country to unveil it," Arnone said.
The county was able to turn this vision into a reality thanks to a partnership with Watchtower Solutions and SafeBeachDay.com.
This program is also similar to what Monmouth County Commissioners rolled out during the pandemic a couple years back with their 'Know Before You Go' initiative.
"I think it's an expansion of that," Arnone said.
Now, it's your turn to check it out and share all the real time information.
"We want to give all the resources we possibly can so it's a comfortable visit and destination for anybody who lives here or anybody outside (Monmouth County) who wants to come and enjoy the great resources that we have," Arnone said.
