WHAT TO DO

 

Emergency

In case of an emergency at the marina, first dial 9-1-1 and then notify Lake Whitney Marina. We are located in HILL County and only a few miles outside the Whitney city limit.

 

There is an air ambulance base in Whitney, https://www.careflite.org/helicopterarea.aspx. Whitney is also included the CareFlite ground ambulance and 911 EMS service area, https://www.careflite.org/groundareas.aspx.

 

 

Electric shock drowning

If you see electric shock drowning taking place at the marina, dial 9-1-1 and follow the steps listed at https://www.esfi.org/resource/electric-shock-drowning-water-and-electricity-don-t-mix-643. Never swim, or allow your pet to swim, in a marina. 

 

 

Fire

Fire extinguishers are located on all boat docks, in dry storage, on the store dock near the gasoline pumps, inside cabins, and inside rental RVs. In case of fire, immediately dial 9-1-1 and then notify Lake Whitney Marina. Evacuate the area immediately.

 

 

Severe storms

In case of severe storms while you're at Lake Whitney Marina @ Juniper Cove, seek shelter in the restroom and shower buildings in the campground loops. There is an additional restroom building in the store parking lot. Seek shelter on land and indoors. Stay away from trees, metal objects, and tall structures when there's lightning in the area. Get off of the water. Get off of boat docks.

 

Before storms arrive at the marina, secure loose items outside, use only plastic stakes to secure a tent, verify your vessel is tied up securely in its slip and fenders are in place to prevent contact with the dock, and check that wheel chocks are in place for camping units and boat trailers.
