Water Safety Tips from the Calaveras Sheriff's Dept.

San Andreas, CA...Summer has arrived in Calaveras County. As the temperature surges up, more and more people will be out on the water. The Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office is reminding people to be alert and cautious when boating or recreating around lakes, rivers, and pools. We are encouraging everyone to keep water safety a priority. Drowning is silent and a tragedy that can unfold within seconds. The following are some tips to keep you safe.




• Keep an eye on children when near or in the water and stay within arm’s reach.
• Always swim with a second person. Even experienced swimmers can tire or get muscle cramps.
• Put barriers around all pools and hot tubs regardless of their size.
• Obey warning signs regarding unexpected changes in river flow.
• Don’t rely on inflatable devices to keep you afloat.
• Lakes can have extreme drop-offs hidden by murky water.
• Wear a life jacket whi le boating. Make sure it is U.S. Coast Guard approved and fits snugly and comfortably.
• When boating, children 12 years and younger must wear a life jacket while the boat is moving.
• Avoid combining alcohol with aquatic activity. Alcohol impairs judgement and distorts your perception of risk and your own abilities.
If someone is in the water is in trouble
• Don’t panic: Yell for Help. Call 911.
• Reach or throw a flotation aid to the distressed swimmer.
If someone in the water is unresponsive
• Get the person out of the water immediately
• Call 911
• If trained, begin CPR. If you are not trained in CPR, follow the instructions from the 911 Dispatcher until emergency medical personnel arrive.
