DMS Courtesy Patrol

We are looking for new DMS Courtesy Patrol members. Being on the Courtesy Patrol is a good way to get out on the beach, show the public some of what DMS does for surf fishing, and help assure people know the rules and techniques for driving on the beach.
Courtesy Patrol members explain what DMS does to help keep our beaches open to OSV (Over the Sand Vehicle) surf anglers while working directly with DNREC officials, and our state legislators. We explain what “Keepers of the Beach” means environmentally, by being involved in planning routine beach cleanups, and assisting in the annual planting of dune grass.
We also emphasize the importance of airing down the vehicle’s tires which enables the vehicle to “float” on the sand and explain other beach driving techniques. The Courtesy Patrol assists DNREC officers and volunteers. When crossing checks are performed, they ensure permit holders have all the proper gear and paperwork necessary to drive on the beaches. The Patrol also assists pulling out vehicles that have become stuck in the sand.
Included in our review of beach protocol, we explain how joining DMS automatically makes the person a member of UMAPA, which is the national umbrella group of all surf angling groups like DMS. UMAPA works at the local, state, and federal entities to preserve the right of surf anglers to drive on our beaches along the Atlantic seaboard.
If you think you would like to work with the Courtesy Patrol please give me a call. ​​​​​​​
