News Release


The North American Safe Boating Campaign wants to get something off its chest and onto yours.

A LIFE JACKET!

Life jackets can be the determining factor between life and death in many boating safety accidents. Each year, on average, 700 people die in boating-related accidents, 8 out of every 10 victims were not wearing a life jacket. According to Virgil Chambers, Executive Director of the National Safe Boating Council, "Thousands of people would be alive today had they taken the simple precaution of wearing a life jacket when they went out on the water."
We will again stress the importance of wearing life jackets. The Coast Guard has a goal to eliminate deaths, injuries and property damage associated with recreational boating. The Coast Guard and its partners are committed to a Safe Boating Campaign that reaches from shore to shore across the North America Continent. Our neighbors to the north, the Canadian Safe Boating Council and the Canadian Coast Guard will also observe Safe Boating Week on May 20 - May 26, 2017. Boating smart is an essential part of any day on the water regardless of where you boat.
For more information about the services provided by the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary, call 314-607-2069 or
visit us online at http://a0850304.uscgaux.info/

 



The Coast Guard Auxiliary is the uniformed civilian component of the U.S. Coast Guard and supports the Coast Guard in nearly all mission areas. The Auxiliary was created by Congress in 1939. For more information, please visit www.cgaux.org

 

National Safe Boating Week runs from May 20 to May 26, 2017. This campaign is designed to help save lives by encouraging everyone to wear their lifejackets when boating. Boaters include those with fishing boats, runabouts, cruisers, personal water craft (PWC), pontoon boats, canoes, paddle boards and kayaks.

Life jackets save lives. Statics show that 76% of all fatal boating accident victims drowned. Of those, 85% were NOT wearing a life jacket.

Thank you,
