Bilingual signs unveiled at state beaches

SAN FRANCISCO

A total of 1,900 new signs in English and Spanish will extend a public education effort by California Sea Grant, a university-based program of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, to warn of the dangers of rip currents and steep beaches, particularly in Central and Northern California.

According to the group, drowning is one of the leading causes of accidental deaths at California state parks.

The signs are to be displayed at beach public access points.
