River Safety PSA

Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks


River Safety PSA: (00:60)

(Buckeye Camp scene)

Did you know that the Number #1 cause of death here is drowning?

(scene and sounds of people playing in the Paradise Creek pool)

Riverbanks crumble without warning. Rocks are slippery. Calm water looks enticing, but underneath swift currents can sweep you away in seconds. Once you fall in, getting out is nearly impossible.

(Zoom out from Deadly River poster)

Be extra careful near water. Stay on land if the water is cold and currents strong!

Don't drink and swim. It's a recipe for disaster.

Enjoy your visits safely, so you can come back again!
