The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers shares water safety tips for Labor Day weekend

Vicksburg, Miss…If you’ll be spending this Labor Day weekend on or around the water, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers urges you to remember these safety tips. Before heading out for the lake or river, be sure you have a life jacket readily available for everyone. The life jackets should be approved by the U.S. Coast Guard, are the right size, the right fit, and are appropriate for the activity you have planned. Then, please be certain that everyone wears it. On average, nine out of 10 people who drowned at a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers lake or river project didn’t wear a life jacket. Life jackets save lives by keeping you afloat and providing time for rescue.
