U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Galveston District’s Simon DeSoto, Colorado River lockmaster, earned second and third place awards for his radio water safety public service announcements during the 17th International Boating and Water Safety Summit in San Antonio, Texas. The radio PSAs “20 seconds to drown” and “Boating accidents, not me” highlight the importance of wearing life jackets while recreating on the water and alerts listeners to the minimal time it takes for a child to drown – 20 seconds. DeSoto partnered with Happy Radio 92.5 to produce and broadcast the PSAs to a potential audience of 36,000 listeners along the Texas coast. Judges graded the submissions on the clarity of the message, the uniqueness/innovation of the PSA and on the overall boating/water safety message.

  • HOUMA, La. - UNIFIED COMMAND URGES CITIZENS TO HELP PROTECT LOUISIANA'S COAST BY NOT TAMPERING WITH BOOM

The Unified Command today released a public service announcement (PSA) regarding boom vandalism currently taking place on Louisiana waters.

The PSA urges citizens to help protect Louisiana's shoreline and marshes by not cutting, tampering or moving boom currently in place. Boom is an essential part of the ongoing response efforts and by damaging boom, the effort to protect Louisiana's coastline and natural inhabitants is jeopardized.

Citizens are encouraged to report any boom vandalism to local law enforcement, the U.S. Coast Guard or by calling (866) 448-5816.

The Unified Command has been established to manage response operations to the April 20, 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. A Unified Command links the organizations responding to an incident and provides a process for those organizations to make consensus decisions. The Houma Unified Command is responsible for all operations in Louisiana.
