KIDS DON’T FLOAT – BUT PFDs DO!

 

RCMSAR 106 (Shuswap) have installed kiosks which have loaner PFDs (Personal Flotation Devices) for children to use while boating or swimming.  There are 14 kiosks located at boat launches and beaches around Shuswap, Mara and Little Shuswap Lakes.  The kiosks have had the financial support of a variety of community sponsors.  See the map and legend below for specific loactions.

RCMSAR wants kids to stay safe in the water.  If a child needs a PFD, parents are welcome to borrow one at the kiosk.  Parents must ensure they choose the right size PFD for their child and it is properly worn while boating or swimming.  Parents must return the PFD at the end of the day for other kids to use.

IF YOU PLAY IN OR NEAR THE WATER, ALWAYS WEAR A PFD!
