TEHAMA COUNTY, Calif. – Law enforcement wants to make sure the public stays safe during the Memorial Day weekend, especially if people are planning to head to the water.

On May 23, the Tehama County Sheriff’s Office and Corning Police Department will be opening a new Life Jacket Loaner Station. Life jacket sizes range from Infant to Adult XL. The life vests are free to borrow and will be available year-round.

“We usually find boaters, people on tubes or paddleboards on the Sacramento River aren’t aware that law requires them to have life vests for adults and children under 12-years-old,” said Sergeant Mark Levindofske with the Tehama County Sheriff’s Office.

The sheriff's office says the life vests will be inspected once a month for any tears or rips. To also prevent the spread of coronavirus, law enforcement says they will be disinfecting and sanitizing each vest.

The program is made possible through a partnership with the Sea Tow Foundation.

Staying hot and hazy today, but relief from the heat is on the way for the middle of this week. We'll also have the potential for mountain thunderstorms on Wednesday. The heat returns this weekend.
