Smith County warden patrols East Texas Lake Memorial Day weekend
TYLER, TX (KLTV) - When you're out on the lake enjoying that cold drink and working on your tan...you're not alone.
Smith County Warden Chris Green will be out there cruising the water making sure everything is as it should be.
If you plan on drinking alcohol and going on a boat, Warden Green Stresses moderation. And, if you're the one driving the boat...you need to be extra careful.
If you're between the ages of thirteen and seventeen, you must take and pass a boater safety course in order to operate a jet ski. Children twelve and under must wear a life jacket that fits properly while on the lake.
Green says using common sense and boating defensively can drastically reduce your chances of being involved in an accident this holiday weekend.
