Safe Boating Week May 22-28th

Life Jackets

National Safe Boating Council

 

The following is a safe boating message from the National Safe Boating Council
 
Before you and your family get out on the water this year, grab a life jacket and “Wear It!” Nearly 90 percent of those who drown while boating were not wearing a life jacket.
 
Life jacket wear is one of the most effective and simple life-saving strategies for safe recreational boating. Boaters are required to have a U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jacket on board for every passenger on their vessel.
 
Today’s life jackets are available in a wide variety of shapes, colors, and sizes. They are comfortable, lightweight, and perfect for any boating activity or sport.
 
No matter what the activity or life jacket style chosen, the most important thing is this: remember to grab a life jacket and “Wear It!” To learn more, visit the National Safe Boating Council online, at www.SafeBoatingCouncil.org.
 
THIS MESSAGE IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE NATIONAL SAFE BOATING COUNCIL, WHICH REMINDS YOU THAT NATIONAL SAFE BOATING WEEK IS MAY 22 THROUGH 28.
