Water and Boating Safety

It’s that time of year. Various local bodies of water provide plenty of access to recreational boating and swimming activities.  A few basic precautions can drastically minimize risks for yourself and others:

  • Wear a Personal Flotation Device (PFD), also aptly called a Life Jacket! Every boat should have a PFD for every person on board.
  • Make sure the body of water matches your swimming skill level, and don’t go in the water unless you know how to swim.
  • Learn CPR and basic rescue techniques.
  • For caregivers: remember that the younger the child, the greater the risk. Be vigilant in keeping a close eye on kids near water.

“Text to 911” Available in Thurston County

CALL IF YOU CAN – TEXT IF YOU CAN’T    –   TEXT TO 9-1-1 is not a replacement to a voice call to 9-1-1 in an emergency situation, but rather as an enhancement to reach 9-1-1 services in specific situations such as:

  • The caller is hearing/voice impaired
  • A medical emergency that renders the person incapable of speech
  • When speaking out loud would put the caller in danger, such as a home invasion, domestic violence situation or an active shooter scenario
  • Any other emergency that makes it impossible to speak out loud.
