Media Opportunity: Free Life Jacket Giveaway! Firefighters to help give out free life jackets, Saturday, July 6 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Barton Park (Photo) - 07/05/19

Clackamas Fire’s Water Rescue Team will be at Barton Park (19009 SE Barton Park Road, Boring, OR) tomorrow (Saturday, July 6) from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. to give out free life jackets. Meg’s Moments for Life Jackets will begin handing out these free life jackets at 9:00 a.m. and until they run out.

Meg’s Moments for Life Jackets is a non-profit organization created in honor of Meagan O’Meara-Clark, who drowned while rafting on the Clackamas River on July 5, 2013. Meagan was 26-years-old and was not wearing a life jacket at the time of the incident. Each year on the anniversary of O’Meara-Clark’s passing, Meg’s Moments for Life Jackets gives away free life jackets at Barton Park in the hopes of saving lives and preventing drownings.

With the generous donations from the Clackamas Emergency Services Foundation, Meg’s Moments for Life Jackets gave out over 1,200 life jackets last year, and has given away over 3,000 life jackets in the last five years.

Their mission is to bring awareness to the importance of always wearing a life jacket when in or around water, and with the help of Clackamas Fire, provide water safety information.
