The city of Mercer Island received help from a community volunteer to obtain a grant to purchase and supply a Donor Life Jacket Station at the boat launch. Volunteers worked with Seattle Children’s Hospital Drowning Prevention Network to outfit these stations with placards and life jackets, which are available for people to borrow when they are at the lake and return when they are finished using them. The city plans to place three more stations in Island water-accessible parks in the future. Photo courtesy of the Mercer Island Police Department
