Lake Gaurd Game App
Lake Guard Mobile Game App Available On Apple App Store and Google Play App Store
Lake Guard is a highly competitive game designed to test the player’s speed, reflexes and boating safety knowledge. You are tasked with guarding a lake that has been overrun with unprepared boaters. Take control of your trusty Safety Cannon to launch the necessary safety gear to them. However, you have to keep an eye out for cans of Grog (beer). Launching a can of Grog to a visitor could prove dangerous so be sure to shoot the cans of Grog onto the dock to be recycled instead! Keep guard of your lake for as long as you can while increasingly hazardous conditions and visitors try to overrun your waters. Share your high score with friends, earn achievements and become the greatest Lake Guard in the world!

The group filmed a water safety PSA that features LoCash’s hit song "I Love This Life," which is currently moving up the country music charts. It is being used to support the USACE National Water Safety Campaign “Life Jackets Worn, Nobody Mourns.”
Young Sailors doing it right: everyone is wearing a personal flotation device. It's the law, and it's water-wise.
Life jackets save lives
When visiting a Corps lake always wear a life jacket and swim in designated swim areas.
