Holiday Water Safety

Gene Higginbotham with Congressman Bruce Westerman and and USACE Deputy Commander, Maj. C.T. Warren discuss water safety. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, and other local agency partners met at Murray and Lock and Dam for a water and recreation safety event ahead of Labor Day. Agencies came together to remind the public to practice recreation and water safety ahead of Labor Day weekend. USACE, AGFC, Arkansas Waterways Commission, North Little Rock Parks Service, Little Rock Parks and Recreation, Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism, the Coast Guard Auxiliary and Congressman Bruce Westerman’s office reminded everyone to wear a life jacket when on or near water, don’t drink alcoholic beverages and operate a boat, never swim alone and stick to designated swim areas.
