Georgia Power & Georgia DNR partner to share water safety tips
SPLASH program emphasizes simple water safety tips for children and adults
ATLANTA, July 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Georgia Power is joining the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to remind Georgians of the importance of water safety this summer. According to the Georgia Department of Public Health, drowning is the second-leading cause of accidental death for children 1 to 4 years of age, with more than 200 Georgians dying from accidental drowning last year. The SPLASH program, a longstanding Georgia DNR initiative, aims to greatly reduce the number of these deaths and injuries.
SPLASH tips for enjoying Georgia's beaches, lakes and rivers this summer include:
Georgia Power, which owns and operates 15 lake properties across the state for power generation and resident recreation, provides recreational opportunities year round for the public at more than 40 sites across the state, including lake properties such as Lakes Oconee and Sinclair in Central Georgia and Lakes Burton and Rabun in North Georgia. It's easy to find information about the Georgia Power lake near you at www.GeorgiaPower.com/Lakes. In addition to property information, including facilities and amenities, local attractions and water safety information, the sites allow visitors to check current lake conditions, virtually explore camp sites and browse an interactive fish guide for each of the lakes.
