Arizona Boating & Watersports - On The Cover - May 2018
Boating-Safety Is For All Seasons
May 1, 2018
The cover photo from the National Safe Boating Congress (NSBC) reminds us that although boating safety is stressed during National Safe-Boating Week, May 19-May 25, it must be a priority all year 'round.
All of the organizations that stress safety on the water emphasize the importance of wearing life jackets. Far too many accidents, with injuries and fatalities, have happened to even good swimmers who were not wearing pfds.
Although it may be tempting to not wear a life jacket - for reasons that pale in comparison to the reasons for wearing one - they may be the very reason that you or loved ones are saved from tragic outcomes.
Bottom line: Make this a habit -just wear it!
