Every year in May, the National Safe Boating Council launches a week-long initiative to raise awareness about the importance of life jacket safety.

You can help spread awareness about National Safe Boating Week 2019 and boating safety by attending events and getting involved on social media.

The goal is to encourage boaters and passengers to wear a life jacket at all times when boating. Here are a few facts from the U.S. Coast Guard’s 2017 Recreational Boating Safety Statistics. Find more helpful facts, resources, and information on the Safe Boating Campaign website.
Today’s life jackets are much more advanced than they used to be. You can find comfortable, lightweight, and stylish options at your local marine supply retailer or even online. As a general reminder, be sure your boat is properly registered and consider taking a boating safety course in your area. Happy National Safe Boating Week!
