Safety for Boaters
Before going out on the water, check weather forecasts and look for storm warning flags at marinas. If a storm breaks while you are out, seek shelter in a protected cove immediately and wait until the storm passes. Lightning is also a hazard on open water.
Water levels in Lakes Mead and Mohave change throughout the year. Always approach the shore with caution and watch for shallows and submerged debris.
Many persons who drown never intended to enter the water. Always wear a life preserver. All boaters must have required safety equipment on board their boat.
