Hot days, cold water equal potentially dangerous combination

Hot weather is on tap this weekend and that means Clark County beaches are sure to draw crowds for a swim.  But even on hot days, most rivers and lakes in Southwest Washington remain cold.  Cold water, especially when high or swift, can overtake even the strongest swimmer in minutes.

On the Columbia River, Frenchman's Bar Regional Park and Captain William Clark Regional Park at Cottonwood Beach, are not safe for swimming because of strong currents and sudden drop-offs.

Swimming is allowed at several county parks but only one park, Salmon Creek Regional Park - Klineline Pond, will have certified lifeguards.  The popular spray park feature will open for public use on June 20.  Lifeguards will be on duty the final two weekends of June and then beginning on July 1, lifeguards will be on duty daily from 11am-7pm.  There is a Life Jacket Loaner Station at Klineline where families can borrow a life jacket while at the park and return them before they leave.

If your summer plans include a trip to a local swimming hole, here are some safety tips:

  • Know the water.  There may be hidden hazards that you can't see like cold water temperatures, swift currents, drop-offs, and entrapment hazards.
  • Know your limits.  Drowning often occur when swimmers get tired.  Wearing a life jacket is always recommended even if you are a great swimmer.
  • Wear a life jacket anytime you are on, in, near, or around the water.  It is estimated that all drowning deaths could have been prevented if a life jacket had been worn.
  • Only use US Coast Guard approved life jackets or vest.  Inflatable floats and toys will not keep your kids safe.
  • Supervise children anytime they are on, in, near, or around water.  Have a designated "water watcher".
  • Don't dive into shallow water or unfamiliar swimming holes.
  • Cover your pool or spa when not in use.  If you have a pool, be sure a fence or other barriers prevent unauthorized entry.
