... Safe boating week begins today may 18th to the 24th...
Today's topic is the use of life jackets. Before you and your family
get out on the water this year... grab a life jacket and wear it.
Nearly 85 percent of those who drown while boating were not wearing
a life jacket. Wearing a life jacket 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.
