In 2011 the Board of Supervisors declared October 2011 as the first Creek and Channel Safety Awareness Month, and directed the Flood Control District to continue implementation of the Creek and Channel Safety Awareness Program. In 2011 and 2012, public input was received to develop the program. Since that time, the program has produced improved signage, new safety brochures, school outreach, community outreach, a safety evaluation, a student created safety video, and Swiftwater Rescue coordination, with additional items coming soon.
As the rains begin, please be aware that water levels will rise in the creeks and channels. The water is cold, swift-moving, and full of debris. Appreciate the great jobs creeks and channels do to protect our community from flooding; protect yourselves and your loved ones – but most importantly,
STAY OUT, STAY ALIVE!
