SUMMER WATER AND BOATING SAFETY
It’s summertime in Spokane and many of us are enjoying the hot days out on the water.
Please remember to be safe when enjoying time at the lake, river, or any other body of water. Wear a personal flotation device (life jacket) any time you’re on or in the water. When boating, make sure you have life jackets for everyone on board and that they wear them. And, if you’re enjoying your day on the water with children, never let them out of your sight.

Enjoy your time on the water and be safe! Have a great summer!
