Many people enjoy recreational boating and fishing in the spring. Yet, what looks like a perfect day can quickly become hazardous if you end up in frigid water. The annual Wear It! boating safety campaign reminds spring boaters to take extra precautions.
“Situations on the water can escalate quickly, and wearing a life jacket not only gives you peace of mind to control an emergency situation but can also save your life,” said Rachel Johnson, executive director of the National Safe Boating Council, the lead organization of Wear It!
Wear It! offers spring boaters tips before they hit the water.
