With the July 4th holiday weekend basically right around the corner, the Lake of the Ozarks Water Safety Council is putting the word out, seasoned boater or not, that it’s a good time to review precautions you should be taking before you hit the water.

“Unfortunately, we had our first drowning of the year, so it just reminds us and reinvigorates, I guess, our efforts to make sure people pay attention to some of the things like being a sober boater” says Captain Bob May, co-chair of the Water Safety Council, “Don’t drive your boat if you’ve been drinking, wear the life jacket.”

He also says it’s a good idea to have working navigational lights, a whistle or a horn to alert other boats, an up-to-date fire extinguisher and…in general..knowing the rules of the water could just very well be the difference between life and death.
