As an advocate for safe boating, I’m here to remind you of the importance of National Safe Boating Week and the significance of wearing a life jacket. Every year, countless lives are lost due to preventable accidents that could have been avoided if the boater had taken the necessary precautions.
It’s essential to understand the dangers of boating without a life jacket. In fact, statistics show that 80% of drowning victims were not wearing a life jacket. This is why it’s so important to make sure you and your passengers are wearing a U.S. Coast Guard approved life jacket at all times while out on the water.
I know it can be difficult to find one you’ll actually wear, but there are plenty of options available in different styles and sizes that will fit your needs and preferences. Plus, there are even special safety features for children and dogs!
At the end of the day, we want everyone to enjoy their time out on the water safely and responsibly. So please take a few moments this National Safe Boating Week to make sure you’re properly equipped with a life jacket before heading out on your next adventure!
