A display to inform beachgoers about the dangers of sun exposure and UV levels in real time has been set up at both Weed Beach and Pear Tree Point Beach.  

The “modular sun safety education system,” also shows information on recommendations to protect yourself from dangerous levels of sun exposure, according to an announcement from the Darien Parks & Recreation Department and the company that created and donated the display. Darien is the first town to receive the innovative products as part of the SOLaware Technologies’ summer pilot program in Connecticut. Darien Health Director David Knauf worked to get Darien as a participant in the pilot program, resulting in the town becoming the earliest partner to get the displays, according to the announcement. “Sun safety is one of my priority educational areas as health director, and the SOLaware solution is a great way to raise awareness within our community,” Knauf said.
