No matter how you enjoy your time on the water, you need to recognize dangers and be ready to avoid them at all times. Boaters, swimmers, and waders must stay clear of dams.

Dam Safety Awareness Day was established in memoriam of the 2,200 people who lost their lives in the 1889 South Fork Dam failure near Johnstown, PA. Learn more about dams and other water hazards: http://ow.ly/AJvn50JecUR

Alcohol impairs judgment and reaction time on the water which puts everyone at risk, including passengers and others enjoying the water.

Pennsylvania is a boating destination state. When an impaired boat operator gets behind the wheel to drive home, a BUI becomes a DUI.

If you'll be out on the water for Memorial Day Weekend, keep yourself and others safe by designating a sober captain and driver.

Flood waters are powerful. 🌊

🚧 6 inches of fast-moving flood water can knock over an adult
🚧 12 inches of rushing water can carry away most cars
🚧 2 feet of rushing water can carry away SUVs and trucks

It is NEVER safe to drive or walk into flood waters. Remember: Turn around, don't drown!

have you tried to use drone with flir to find the missing girl . i know there are some local guys with them set up .
This is such an incredible organization! You're doing such amazing work for your community and the fact that you haven't let anything deter you, even a hurricane that wiped out much of your equipment, is so inspiring. It reminds me of the film, Good Fortune that tells billionaire entrepreneur, John Paul DeJoria's rags-to-riches story. He served in the Navy, was homeless twice, a single dad working as a door-to-door salesman, and he lost his brother in a motorcycle accident and yet he never gave up on his dreams. He ended up co-founding Paul Mitchell and founding PatrΓ³n Tequila and using his success to give back to his community, the same way you do! He not only donates to over 160 charities, but he actively participates in many of them, as well, such as Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, which is shown in the film. The film doesn't seem to leave any detail out, showing the good and the bad of JP's life that led him to the successful, selfless person he is now. Such an inspiring film that your organization actually has a lot in common with! You should be so proud of the work you're doing--JP would be! The film is available for pre-order and will be out on VOD August 1. It's one that you will definitely enjoy! Keep up the amazing work :) http://apple.co/2r11ZXU
