NOAA "Wave Safe With Bruckner Chase" Series – World Open Water Swimming Association

The NOAA National Weather Service and Bruckner Chase teamed up to create a series of safety videos called “Wave Safe with Bruckner Chase.”



Bruckner Chase and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration creatively stepped into this vacuum of information and produced the NOAA National Weather Service “Wave Safe With Bruckner Chase” Series. This groundbreaking series of demographically and geographically specific videos offers a plethora of visual assets and educational materials that is easy to understand and remember.

Why it was nominated

For addressing specific hazards and risk factors along the coasts of American East Coast, the American Pacific Northwest, Southern California, Hawaii and American Samoa, for sharing and teaching actions that people can take and specific behaviors that people can adapt, and for taking a lifetime of experiences as a lifeguard and ocean athlete and transforming them to an impactful series of short educational videos that can literally save lives and empower people at the shore to make good choices for themselves and others

    Have been swimming with him in Ocean City and love his spirit and energy! Love the respect the ocean sentiments with regarding to safety and caring for our bodies of water. Best days of my life have been swimming with his team and have been getting comfortable with his guidance in the ocean! He’s also done night and cold water swims and the experience and vibes were truly amazing!
