Water Awareness Initiative
We live in an area surrounded by water, rapidly moving and sometimes ice cold. Many of our local youth are unaware of the dangers of recreating in our local waters.
It is our mission to create awareness through education, outreach and awareness to inspire safe water experiences.
Our loaner Life Jackets program is under review for local lakes, however life jackets are available to borrow for the day at the following locations:
Auburn State Recreation Area (North Fork American River)
Coloma State Park (South Fork American River)
Swift Water Safety YouTube
Learn CPR, it saves lives
Your kids will be introduced to this program through various community outreach programs including our bi-annual school assemblies, which include a demonstration by El Dorado Search and Rescue and California Expeditions, and include pool safety, dry drowning topics as well as what to do in accidental cold water immersion, and general overview of local rivers and lakes.
