First Aid Stations
Accidents happen, even at the beach. The Ocean City Beach Patrol divides the OC beach into zones from north to south. Each zone has a first aid station at the zone headquarters. These first aid stations are at 1st Street, 12th Street, 34th Street and 59th Street. Contact the Ocean City Beach Patrol or a lifeguard immediately in the event of an emergency at the beach.
Fees at Ocean City Beaches and Bays
In order to pay for services that keep Ocean City beaches safe, clean and a fun place for all to visit and relax, Ocean City requires beachgoers to have beach tags. Beach tags can be purchased for the season, the week, or the day.
Visitors can purchase seasonal tags during the pre-season (before Memorial Day) at a discounted rate. Pre-season purchases can be made at:
- City Hall (9th Street and Asbury Avenue)
- The 46th Street Welcome Center (on West Avenue)
- The Welcome Center on the Route 52 Causeway
- Henry Knight Building (12th Street & Haven Avenue)
- Aquatic & Fitness Center (17th Street& Simpson Avenue)
Please note that some of these locations have limited hours during the pre-season. City Hall always operates Monday through Friday from 8:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
During the summer season, Seasonal ($35), Weekly ($20), and Daily ($10) passes can be purchased at the four locations above and from City employees who work on the beach to ensure that beachgoers have tags.
