This summer police have received and responded to numerous swimmers and boaters in distress. Sometimes the calls were legitimate and sometimes a person on shore perceived a person to be in trouble when they were not. All of our occurrences turned out positive. Protect yourself, if your out on the water in a boat or canoe or kayak, wear your lifejacket, donít go out when it is rough or a heavy off shore wind, if your going to swim a fair distance out into the lake have a spotter in a boat who can help if you get into problems, at least let someone know your plans.
