Elkland Search and Rescue Addresses Boating Issues

Elkland Search and Rescue

Ladies and Gentlemen,
Please consider the following information a Public Service Announcement from Elkland Search and Rescue for anyone Kayaking, Canoeing or Boating any bodies of water in just about the whole State of PA. This time of year we all have outdoor water activities on our minds. Children and young adults are finishing up their school year and families are starting their annual camping and outdoor water trips. PLEASE, even though the mandatory Nov.1 - April 30 Life Jacket law is past consider the following information: 

The water temperature is about 10 degrees colder than in past years for many areas. If a person is submerged in most of these water temperatures, the human body can not compensate for these colder water temperatures and hypothermia can set in VERY quickly, even before a person can get out of the water. These water temperatures can effect a persons swimming abilities, and mental judgement. These exposure conditions can not be overcome by anything other than special equipment a water rescue team would wear.

What do we recommend if you are venturing on the water? At a minimum keep a Life Jacket ON! Being available in the vessel is not Good Enough, as your water exposure, may hinder your clear thinking and swimming ability. Keep a change of clothes available in a dry bag just in case you get wet. And lastly, let someone know your travel plans, have a return time and a time that if the individuals are not returned by, to let the proper authorities know something might be wrong and a search should be started.

Within the last 2 weeks in the state of PA, numerous deaths have been reported, most if not all of them could have been prevented if a lifejacket would have been worn. PLEASE BE SAFE PEOPLE and JUST USE a LIFE JACKET if going in the water for a few more weeks! THANK YOU !

We are asking You to Please share this post to Your wall, it may save a Life !
