Rescue serves as an example for boating safety

A rescue in Kewaunee last week is serving as a nice reminder for boaters to stay safe out on the water. The U.S. Coast Guard’s Station Small Two Rivers crew responded to a sinking vessel near the Kewaunee River last Friday. With help from a Good Samaritan, the Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department, and the Kewaunee Fire Department, the crew was able to save the three people on board and tow the vessel back to the harbor. U.S. Coast Guard Senior Chief Justin Irwin says boaters should have a few items on board just in case an emergency arises.


Flares and whistles are also good items to have to catch the attention of rescue boats, especially if your cell phone gets lost or does not have a good signal.
