National Safe Boating Week – May 18-24

Published on May 10th, 2013

A sunny day on the water can turn deadly in seconds. The National Safe Boating Council is seeking to increase life jacket safety awareness, as approximately 84 percent of drowning victims in recreational boating accidents were not wearing a life jacket (U.S. Coast Guard 2011 Recreational Boating Safety Statistics).

The National Safe Boating Council is kicking off its national campaign promoting safe boating and life jacket safety next weekend with National Safe Boating Week, which runs from May 18-24.
