Miami Beach installing 50 Sunscreen Dispensers

Miami Beach installing 50 Sunscreen Dispensers across City for Everyone to Use

Miami Beach has taken an initiative to raise awareness among people regarding the damages caused by the sun. The administration has planned to install 50 sunscreen dispensers throughout Miami Beach for everyone use.

The dispensers will be setup at various public pools, parks and various beach entry points near lifeguard stands. Miami Beach City Manager Jimmy Morales said that Miami is considered to the sun capital of the world.

In Miami, people enjoy outdoor activities including relaxing at the beach and water sports. If these activities are done without using sun protection then it can lead to sunburns, a major cause of skin cancer.

The free sunscreen dispensers will provide the needed protection. Destination Brands and Mount Sinai Medical Center have sponsored the project. Last year, the city partnered with Destination Brands to come up with a signature line of sunscreens and bronzers to celebrate the city’s centennial. The lotion available in the public dispensers will be 30 SPF.

“Public safety is priority and we’re offering this amenity because we care”, said Morales. The program’s launch at the time of the city’s centennial on March 26 can be considered as a gift to the community. In 2015, melanoma will account for more than 73,000 cases of skin cancer.
