An annual survey of recreational boaters found the Safe Boating Campaign continues to have a positive impact on boater behavior, specifically the impact on life jacket wear, attitudes and safety behavior of boaters.
LIFE JACKET LABELS
Did you know there is a new life jacket label? The label is being phased in and is printed on the inside of new life jackets. The new label DOES NOT make obsolete life jackets with the old label. Always look for a life jacket that is U.S. Coast Guard approved.
Remember, the best life jacket is one you wear! Your life jacket should be appropriate for your water activity and in good condition. Life jackets with a tear, broken pieces, or buoyancy loss should be disposed.
WEAR YOUR LIFE JACKET AT WORK DAY
Wear Your Life Jacket at Work Day is May 29, 2023. Wear your life jacket, snap a picture while at work and share on social media with the hashtags #wearyourlifejacketatworkday and #safeboating.
Hosted by the National Safe Boating Council, this annual event is a fun, educational way to heighten life jacket awareness and highlight the various styles just prior to the official launch of National Safe Boating Week.
NATIONAL SAFE BOATING WEEK
The Safe Boating Campaign kicks off the weekend before Memorial Day with National Safe Boating Week and continues throughout the year with various events and activities. For more information, get started as a partner.
