Water safety emphasized this Memorial Day Weekend

Signs of summer surround Lake Nokomis as people hit the water. That’s where you’ll find John Teurman — running up the beach and back again.

“We’re up early, and we’re working pretty hard,” said Teurman, an employee at Wheel Fun Rentals. “We’re renting out boats, and then we’re down here, we’re helping people get kayaks, paddle boats, pedal boats, canoes, and sometimes you gotta give them a little instruction and stuff, so it’s a lot of work.”

With no lifeguards expected to man the stands until later in the afternoon, other precautions, such as life jackets, are required.

“Safety is really important here, so we have life vests over here,” Teurman said. “I mean, we just can’t verify how good of a swimmer someone is, so we just want to make sure, no matter what, they are safe out there. And I guess life vests are the best way to do that.”
