A local organization is promoting water safety. Volunteers with the Lake of the Ozarks Water Safety Council are spending the day telling lake area residents about the need for life jackets and having a designated captain. Rebecca Green is with the organization and says volunteers will be painting stenciled reminders around the lake to wear life jackets.
Green says they’re happy to put a stenciled reminder on people’s boat ramps and docks or any place near the water where people will see it. She says they want to get the message to as many people as possible about the need to wear a life jacket.
