...LIFE JACKETS...

THE FOLLOWING IS A SAFE BOATING MESSAGE FROM THE NATIONAL SAFE 
BOATING COUNCIL AND THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FOR THIS YEARS 
NATIONAL SAFE BOATING WEEK.

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. TODAYS LIFE JACKETS ARE 
AVAILABLE IN A WIDE VARIETY OF SHAPES...COLORS...AND SIZES. THEY ARE 
COMFORTABLE...LIGHTWEIGHT...AND PERFECT FOR ANY BOATING ACTIVITY. 

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS THIS: REMEMBER TO GRAB A LIFE JACKET AND 
WEAR IT!

THIS MESSAGE WAS BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE AND 
THE NATIONAL SAFE BOATING COUNCIL.
