J. Percy Priest Lake, Center Hill Lake, and Cordell Hull Lake will be participating in “Life Jackets Saves and Pays Day” at U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ (USACE) Day-Use areas on July 12, 2014.

On July 12, any participating USACE day-use area will allow FREE one day admittance to visitors that bring a life jacket to the park. Participating parks include: J. Percy Priest Lake – Anderson Road Park and Cook Park; Center Hill Lake – Floating Mill Park, Hurricane Bridge Park, and Ragland Bottom Park; Cordell Hull Lake – Defeated Creek Park, Roaring River Park, and Wartrace Park.

“Life Jackets Saves and Pays Day” is a local event held by USACE to emphasize the importance of wearing a life jacket when around water. “Once in the park, don't leave your lifejacket behind, WEAR IT!” says Ranger Sarah Peace. “The Corps wants everyone to have fun on the water, but most importantly we want you to be safe!”

So what are you waiting for? Grab your lifejacket, and we’ll see you at the lake!
