Communicating with the Community
It’s going to be summer soon and the activities on the lake will resume in full swing. We’ll see what kind of summer it is as we endure the fits and starts of late spring when Mother Nature can’t decide what kind of weather to dish out.
The members of your local volunteer fire departments who respond on the lake want you to take a moment to remind you to be safe this summer. We respond for emergencies any time of the day or night but we would rather not respond at all. The local volunteer fire departments who respond to the lake are Arvin Hart Fire Co, Quaker Springs Fire Department, Malta Ridge Fire Department and Round Lake Hose Company. The City of Saratoga Springs Fire Department which is a career fully paid department will also respond as needed. EMS Agencies who respond to calls at the lake include; Stillwater/Malta EMS, General Schuyler EMS and the City of Saratoga Springs Fire & EMS. Police agencies available are the Stillwater PD, State Police, Saratoga County Sheriff’s Dept., State Park Police, ENCON Police, and the City of Saratoga Springs.
Operator inexperience, inattention, recklessness, and speeding are the four leading causes of tragic watercraft crashes and the leading cause of death is drowning. It only takes a moment to don personal floatation devices which can save the lives of your passengers and you.Crash statistics indicate boaters who wear life jackets and take boater safety courses are most likely to stay safe on New York’s waters.
Follow these basic safety tips and enjoy our local lakes and rivers with family and friends.
