PSA - Calgary Fire Department Urges Caution Around Harvie Passage
June 06, 2012 04:20 PM Category: Fire
The Calgary Fire Department is cautioning Calgarians that the increased water levels and flow rates in recent days may increase the hydraulics on the Class 2 and 3 rapids at Harvie Passage. This means an increased level of experience and skill is required by those attempting to clear the rapids. The changing conditions also increase the risk of danger to inexperienced and under-prepared users. Those attempting to navigate the rapids at Harvie Passage should be experienced in white water kayaking and should have appropriate safety equipment including helmets and life jackets.
The Calgary Fire Department urges all river users to use extreme caution and to know the risks. Conditions on the river can change quickly. All users should be prepared for a variety of conditions and should always be wearing a life jacket or PFD on the water.
Please note that this caution is not a Bow River Advisory, rather, a public safety message for river users.
