Park Service, Coast Guard team up for safety

The National Park Service and the Coast Guard have formed an agreement to increase safety patrols on Lake Mead and Lake Mohave. The agreement brings together the resources of both agencies, including trained boat operators from the Coast Guard Auxiliary and boats from the Park Service.

“Education is the best tool we have to keep boaters safe and prevent accidents,” said William Dickinson, superintendent of Lake Mead National Recreation Area, in a statement. “Traditionally boater education has taken place on shore. With the Coast Guard Auxiliary using NPS boats, we will now extend boater education to the water.”

While auxiliary members don’t have law enforcement authority, they will be on the water educating visitors to the Nevada/Arizona park about safe boating practices, providing information, and assisting with search and rescue.
