What is the value of your life or that of your child? Is it
worth buying and wearing a properly fitted life jacket when you recreate on a
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers river or lake project?
Last year, 17 individuals drowned on Mobile District managed river and
lake projects located throughout Mississippi, Alabama, Florida and
Georgia. These fatalities didnt have to happen and could have been
prevented if a few safety rules had been followed.
The Corps encourages everyone to recreate safely in, on and around
water. Remember: a child can drown in as few as 20 seconds; an adult in 60
seconds. It takes less than one minute to put on a life jacket, snap the clips
and ensure it fits properly.
To promote water safety and help prevent drownings, visitors can find life
jacket loaner stations at many Corps-operated recreation areas in the
Southeastern United States. Visitors can find information about
this program at gate houses located in our campgrounds and day use facilities.
