May is National Water Safety Month

The Folsom Fire Department wants to help you and your family be water safe around waterways, swimming pools, and other standing water. Visit the department’s website for drowning prevention information and other water safety tips. 

As temperatures rise, the region's lakes, rivers, and public pools are popular destinations for outdoor fun. A public safety video by the Folsom Fire Department and Folsom Police Department highlights important boating and water safety tips to keep in mind as you head out to the water this summer.

The Folsom Fire Department's Life Jacket Loaner Program provides Folsom residents with free daily and weekend rental of life jackets for all ages of children and adults. The life jackets are available at Folsom Fire Station 35 at 535 Glenn Drive; borrowers must provide a valid driver's license. For more information, call 916-461-6300.
