Water Safety

USACE is one of the nation’s leading federal providers of outdoor recreation, and we take water safely seriously. At the USACE Vicksburg District, we want to make sure the millions of people who visit our recreation sites every year have an experience that’s as safe as it is fun.

Our rangers teach visitors how to be safe while boating, swimming, fishing and participating in other activities on and around the water. They also show visitors the correct way to wear a life jacket and allow them to borrow jackets through our life jacket loaner program.

Every year, our rangers attend dozens of classroom and community events to talk about the importance of water safety and give away water safety brochures, posters and other promotional items.

If you’d like district rangers to speak about water safety at your event, contact your local district office.
