LeCount Hollow Beach Upgrades

In 2021 Moosh Systems provided a several enhanced safety measures at LeCount Hollow Beach in Wellfleet, MA.

Shark Alert System

In the summer of 2021 a text activated light and audio signal was installed on the dune overlooking LeCount Hollow Beach. This system has the potential to alert beachgoers and swimmers when a shark is spotted or detected in the area. The effectiveness of the system was demonstrated to Welfleet town officials, safety personel and lifeguards in August of 2021. The system was not in place in 2022 for a variety of reasons none of which relate to its effectiveness.


In the spring of 2021 WiFi was enabled at LeCount Hollow which allowed for emergency communications including WiFi based calling and texting. The system was not implemented in 2022 as significant improvements in cell phone reception made it unneccesary.

First Aid

A tourniquet is placed on the beach a few hundred feet to the right of the parking area during the summer months. This was first done in 2021 and will continue to be done as long as is necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have questions that are not addressed below feel free to contact us.

Are these services permanent and are they available year round?

These upgrades were put in place during the summer of 2021. Unfortunatley, we are unable to maintain the equipment during the offseason. We hope to be able to provide these services again in the future.

Were these projects expensive and who paid for them?

No. Setup costs for these projects were relatively minimal and monthly costs are relativley small as well. That being said these still cost money and we thank the Cape Cod Ocean Community for their generous financial support.

Doesn't the town already put tourniquet kits on the beaches?

No. The town of Wellfleet does not put tourniquet kits on the beaches. In the past they have placed them at the top of the sand dune. However, this location does not make sense considering how crucial time can be in the case of a severe bleed injury.
