OID To Fund Life Jacket Loaners

POSTED August 2, 2011 4:07 p.m.

 The Oakdale Irrigation District Board of Directors approved a donation of $3,000 to Oakdale fire and rural fire departments in an action at the Aug. 2 regular meeting to use toward the purchase of 140 life jackets for a loaner program being implemented for Oakdale’s waterways.

Oakdale rural fire chief Lee Winton said the life jackets cost about $17 each and they will help save lives and cut down on near-drownings. He said that the fire departments have been very busy this year with Stanislaus River water rescues.
