Stay Safe And Use Life Jacket Loaner Stations





What’s that in the forecast? Warm weather?

It’s a great time to get out to the river, but remember, it’s important to be safe out in the water! Do you know how to stay safe while you’re swimming?

The state of Oregon operates life jacket loaner stations on an honor system—an essential for accessible summertime safety. Those needing a life jacket may borrow one but must return them.

The Oregon State Marine Board and Nautical Safety Foundation have encouraged and supplied life jackets around some parks in Oregon.
