MEMBERS OF MAURY COUNTY FIRE AN RESCUE RESPONDED TO A RIVER RESCUED SATURDAY EVENING. BOTH INDIVIDUALS WERE FOUND SAFE AND HAD MISS JUDGED THE AMOUNT OF TIME IT WOULD TAKE TO GET TO THEIR DESTINATION. OFFICIALS ADVISE THE FOLLOWING TIPS TO MAKE YOUR KAYAK ADVENTURE SAFE AND FUN: TELL SOMEONE YOUR PADDLE PLAN, WHICH INCLUDES: WHERE YOU ARE GOING, WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING, HOW LONG YOU EXPECT TO BE GONE AND HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE IN YOUR PARTY. ALWAYS WEAR A HELMET. STAY HYDRATED AND BRING PLENTY OF WATER AND FOOD. AND WHEN PADDLING IN A NEW AREA, CHECK WITH THE LOCALS REGARDING CURRENTS, SHORELINE CONDITIONS AND WEATHER PATTERNS. PLAN AN "ESCAPE" ROUTE - AN ALTERNATIVE PLACE TO GET OFF THE WATER SHOULD ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS DICTATE IT.
