Grand Lake Fire Protection District is partnering with the Christopher Mullinex Water Rescue Fund as well as multiple agencies in Grand County to bring the message of water safety to people who use our lakes and waterways with the goal of preventing drownings.
We are working with the Mullinex Fund to provide life jackets to recreational users in our area, as well as set up a life jacket loaner program on the lakes, and assist with providing public education and training. We are nearing our goal to have the life jackets available in May 2016. Additionally, we will participate in school presentations on water safety in May.
One of the primary goals of this partnership is to establish a life jacket loaner program, which will provide opportunities for visitors to borrow life jackets at boating ramps, local businesses, and other locations around the lakes. Wearing a life jacket while swimming in lakes, and rivers, and while boating is important for your safety and the safety of your children, family, and friends.
