Fun Events Bring Awareness to Safe Boating

Fun Events Bring Awareness to Safe Boating

The Arizona Game and Fish Department, together with boating professionals and enthusiasts nationwide, will demonstrate the importance of remaining safe on the water by participating in Wear Your Life Jacket to Work Day, Friday, May 19. In Michigan, anyone under the age of 6 must wear a life jacket when on the open deck of any vessel, but wearing a personal flotation device is recommended for everyone. The event is created to highlight comfort and ease of life jacket use.

"Don't just have your life jacket close by when you are boating, wear it", said Mike Bailey, chief of the ODNR Division of Parks and Watercraft. In addition to legally required equipment, such as life jackets and fire extinguishers, always carry a first-aid kit, nautical charts and an anchor. Be sure to check that navigation lights work.

- File a float plan.

Before you leave, let family or friends know the details of your trip, including when you should be back.
