Life Jacket Loaner Program

The objective of the Chisago County Sheriff's Office Life jacket Loaner Program is to encourage and promote water safety in Chisago County. The Chisago County Sheriff's Office continues to help keep children safe while on the water by offering a life jacket loaner program for kids.

This program, made possible by the Rush Lake Improvement Association and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR), allows boaters to borrow child-sized life jackets at no charge.

Getting a Life Jacket
If a boating family discovers they don't have enough properly-fitting children's life jackets on board, they can simply visit the Sheriff's Office in Center City or District Office in Rush City, present a photo ID, and sign out an infant, child or youth jacket for the day or the weekend.

When they've finished boating, they can return the jacket(s) to the same location by appointment only. Rush City District Office is located at:

325 Eliot Avenue
Rush City, MN 55069

Please contact the Chisago County Sheriff's Office to get a life jacket.
