National Safe Boating Week

Recreational boating and water activities are enjoyed by millions of Americans each year.  Boating safety advocates recommend all boaters and passengers not only have a life jacket, but wear it at all times while boating.  Regardless of your age or experience level, the data shows that life jackets save lives. Take the pledge to always Wear It while boating.  Accidents on the water happen too fast to reach and put on a stowed life jacket.

National Safe Boating Week will be held from May 21-27, 2022, reminding all boaters to brush up on boating safety skills and prepare for the boating season.  This observance week is the annual kick-off of the Safe Boating Campaign, a global awareness effort that encourages boaters to make the most of their boating adventure by being responsible.

U.S. Coast Guard statistics show that drowning was the reported cause of death in four out of every five recreational boating fatalities in 2020, and that 86 percent of those who drowned were not wearing life jackets.

Have fun on the water, make memories with your family and friends – all while boating responsibly.
