Corbett Fire Needs Replacement Life Jackets at the Sandy River

Corbett Fire Department  Corbett, Oregon  August 29, 2022

In June, the volunteer Corbett Fire Department placed 120 life jackets at Dabney Park and Lewis and Clark boat ramp, so they could be borrowed by people using the river for swimming or floating on the river. This was an important change to prevent drownings on the river, because almost all of the drowning victims are not wearing a life jacket. The people using the river could borrowed the jackets and then returned them after they had been used on the river. Unfortunately, over 100 of the jackets have not been returned. The Corbett Fire Department has donated $500.00 and the Corbett Firefighters Association have doubled that with a donation of $1,000.00 to replace the missing life jackets.
