Be sure everyone wears a U.S. Coast Guard approved, properly fitting life jacket while boating.

The best life jacket is one you will wear. Accidents happen quickly – if you’re not wearing your life jacket, you won’t have time to put it on. Life jackets are for everyone, regardless of your age or swimming ability. Always !
