...LIFE JACKETS...

THE FOLLOWING IS A SAFE BOATING MESSAGE FROM THE NATIONAL
SAFE BOATING COUNCIL AND THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE.

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.
