Water Safety:

* NOTE:  All counties have 911 service.  The counties and states are not interconnected.  In some cases services of Fire Departments and Rescue Squads overlap counties and state lines.  When using 911 you must clearly identify the location where assistance is needed (State, County, Town, Subdivision, Street, House number).  If possible, a person should be directed to stand at the roadside to flag down the volunteer unit responding.

Use of cell phones on or around the lake is spotty and is not suggested for 911 calls.  If you must, in an emergency, use a cell phone you need to determine which 911 area you have reached and you must be able to properly locate your position on the lake so the 911 service contacted can contact another agency if necessary.
