Don’t Give A Dam Your Life…
Be safe on all recreational waterways
Too many lives are lost on the water due to lack of accessible safety information. On-water accidents can be prevented and Low-Head dam fatalities eliminated by education and proper signage.
Sean Hiebel, 24 years old, of Fort Wayne IN died while going over a dam—we are continuing his family’s outreach.
Elimination, mitigation and education about these dams are important public health measures.
