Folsom rescue drill highlights need for water safety

A kayaker was in distress on the water. A lifeguard jumps into action. A rescue at Lake Natoma is now underway. Although it was only a drill, lifeguards managed to show a couple dozen families gathered on the shore Friday afternoon what it’s like when they get called out to perform a rescue on our region’s lakes and rivers. The purpose of such demonstrations is to stress the importance of wearing life jackets.
