Electric Shock Drowning Prevention Class

Saturday, June 6, 2015

9 am to Noon

Rocky Point Marina and Boatyard Clubhouse

23586 NW St. Helens Rd., Portland, OR

On Saturday June 6, Rocky Pointe Marina will host an Electric Shock Drowning (ESD) prevention class at the Boatyard Clubhouse in St. Helens, OR. Joined by local boat owner and ESD-prevention advocate Kevin Ritz, Rocky Pointe Marina hopes to raise awareness of the dangers of stray electricity in the water that can lead to fatalities.

Following the tragic loss of his young son to ESD over 15 years ago, Kevin Ritz has made it his life mission to prevent this from happening to others. Kevin will be offering his expertise on the subject, as well as providing hands-on demonstrations with boats, power pedestals and shore power cords.

This class is free and open to all. We strongly encourage representatives from all marinas and yacht clubs to attend. Please reserve space(s) by emailing to Or simply show up. All are welcome.

The best way to avoid ESD at your facility is to not allow swimming. These 8”x11” signs will be available at the class for only $5 each. You can pre-order your sign when signing up.

In honor of Lucas Ritz.
