Columbia River safety zone for boat exhibition

By , Columbian Assistant Metro Editor

The Coast Guard will establish a temporary safety zone east of the Interstate 5 Bridge during a boat exhibition event from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Thursday on the Columbia River.

The perimeter of the safety zone will extend between Hayden Island and the Vancouver side of the Columbia River. It will start about 700 yards east of the I-5 Bridge and extend to the east end of Hayden Island, according to a news release from the U.S. Coast Guard.

All vessels will be prohibited from entering, anchoring or loitering within the safety zone during the specified time. If requesting permission to enter the zone, hail the Captain of the Port’s representative on VHF-FM radio channel 22A or 16, the news release states.

Those in the safety zone must comply with all lawful orders or directions given by the Captain of the Port or designated representative.
