    Lake and Boating Safety

    Lake and Boating Safety

    Whether at home or on vacation, boating, fishing and swimming can be fun ways to enjoy the great outdoors. And safety precautions like life jackets are a given for millions of families who take to the water. But there is an unseen danger that lake-goers everywhere should be aware of. It’s called electric shock drowning, or ESD. Electric Shock Drowning occurs when a person drowns after being electrocuted while swimming in water that is charged with an electrical current.

    Learn how to avoid this scary situation by listening to our podcast. Hear from Byron Dudley, Manager of Communication & Member Service and Terry Rosenthal, Manager of Engineering at Laclede Electric Cooperative as they detail what boat and dock owners must do to keep the water safe; and what swimmers need to know to stay safe.
