DART: Wear Your Life Jacket

SACRAMENTO–

Did you forget your life jacket? “Wear it, bottom line.” says Kelly McFarlane of the Drowning Accident Rescue Team (DART).

If more people wore them, she points out, the non-profit organization wouldn’t have to go out on the river to recover and rescue people nearly 100 times a year.

The organization got a $25,000 donation from the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department Saturday as they gear up for another summer season along the river.

The donation will be spent on eight new masks for divers.

“Help us out, wear a life jacket so we don’t have to come out and find you,” McFarlane says.
