Water Safety Program
Most people equate water with FUN! Swimming, boating, scuba diving, fishing, all sorts of water-related activities draw us to the lake. Yet water can be deadly when we fail to respect it. Nearly 3,000 people drown each year, and nearly all of these deaths could have been prevented if the right precautions had been taken.
The US Army Corps of Engineers seeks to promote water safety awareness whenever possible. Park Rangers present water safety programs to hundreds of school children each year, and are always seeking to expand our programs to other schools. Videos and live demonstrations and interaction are used to teach children the importance of water safety and how to prevent drownings. Schools, civic groups, home school groups, and 4-H Clubs are just a few of the organizations where we can help children and adults learn and practice water safety skills, all at no charge. To setup a program, contact the Water Safety Coordinator at the Sam Rayburn Project Office at 409-384-5716.
Please take a few moments to read the following precautions that should be taken when at the lake.
