“The near impalement of a toddler last week in Myrtle Beach, S.C. was a critical turning point", says Sand Up For Safety™ Founder Robert K. Houton. “The public needs to know many of these injuries are preventable, the current risk is unacceptable” says Buoy Beach Shade Anchor President John Supino.

Washington, D.C., June 26, 2019 --In the wake of a toddler almost being impaled in Myrtle Beach, S.C. last week, an unprecedented groundswell of public support among the public for Sand Up for Safety’s ™ mission and Buoy Beach’s commitment to corporate responsibility in elevating the safety of its customers has resulted in their teaming up to work with the U.S. Congress toward establishing uniform standards among existing marketplace solutions.
