Some 80 youngsters learn how to keep safe in the water in Portage

Director at Great Lakes Surf Rescue Project, Bob Pratt talks to children about two rules to remember about water safety. "Don't panic and don't do anything stupid," he told a group of children from the Portage and South Haven Boys & Girls Clubs on Friday during a water safety program sponsored by the Portage Parks Department at Portage High School. Representatives from the Great Lakes Surf Rescue Project, as well as the Portage Fire Department, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources and the U.S. Coast Guard were on hand for the event.
