Georgia Power released a new public service announcement (PSA) highlighting water safety for the start of the summer boating season. Drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death for children 1 to 4 years of age, according to the Georgia Department of Public Health and SPLASH, a longstanding Georgia Department of Natural Resources initiative supported by Georgia Power. Through public outreach, the organizations aim to greatly reduce the number of these deaths and injuries.
Lake Safety Begins with a SPLASH
SPLASH encourages citizens to follow these tips when enjoying beaches, pools, lakes, rivers and other bodies of water:
Georgia Power is the largest non-governmental provider of recreation facilities in the state, and provides recreational opportunities year round for the public at more than 40 sites. The company owns and operates 15 lake properties across Georgia for power generation and resident recreation, making it easy to find a Georgia Power lake near to you.
Find out more by visiting Georgia Power's Lakes & Recreation site. There you will find detailed information about all of the Georgia Power properties, including facilities and amenities, local attractions and water safety information. The site also allows visitors to check current lake conditions, virtually explore camp sites and browse an interactive fish guide for each of the lakes.
