Education and knowledge are crucial to prevent drownings

“Check the wind before you swim”

A local woman who has witnessed many water emergencies firsthand at Station Beach in Kincardine, including the most recent drowning of a 66-year-old man, is taking matters into her own hands with the hope of educating visitors and residents alike.

Several of her designs are much more sobering – photos and stories about those who have tragically lost their lives in the lake.
