Safety first should be the watchword this long holiday weekend, according to local officials.

Authorities also caution against boating and drinking, or 'floating' and drinking for rafters, as the alcohol will slow response time and could create added danger for those trying to enjoy a day on the water. Extra patrols will be implemented on the area's waterways as deputies crack down on drunken or impaired boaters.
