Are there facilities or emergency services on the barrier islands?
Most of the barrier islands are remote with no facilities, amenities, or emergency services, and are dynamic coastlines that are subject to quickly changing conditions including tides, winds, currents, and other weather. When planning a visit, know the risks and please come prepared. If you have an emergency, please call for help immediately (see next question) and find a safe place to wait.
