...Public Information Statement...

The following is a safe boating message from the National Safe
Boating Council and the National Weather Service for this year`s
National Boating Week.

Be sure to wear a life jacket when on the water. Nearly 85 percent
of those who down while boating were not wearing a life jacket.
Wearing a life jacket is the most effective and simple life-saving
strategies for safe recreational boating. Boaters are required to
have a US Coast Guard approved life jacket on board for every
passenger on their vessel.
