...WEAR YOUR LIFE JACKET. IT FLOATS - YOU DON'T!...

THE FOLLOWING IS A SAFE BOATING MESSAGE FROM THE UNITED STATES COAST GUARD AUXILIARY 10-6 WILMINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA.

THE US COAST GUARD AUXILIARY FLOTILLA 10-6 WILMINGTON, REMINDS BOATERS THAT MAY 21ST TO MAY 27TH IS NATIONAL SAFE BOATING WEEK. BOAT SMART FROM THE START. WEAR YOUR LIFE JACKET. IT FLOATS - YOU DON'T.

THE U.S. COAST GUARD ESTIMATES THAT LIFE JACKETS COULD HAVE SAVED THE LIVES OF OVER 80 PERCENT OF BOATING FATALITY VICTIMS. AS A BOAT OPERATOR, YOU'RE IN COMMAND OF THE SAFETY OF YOUR PASSENGERS. BUT ACCIDENTS CAN, AND DO HAPPEN WITH TERRIFYING SPEED ON THE WATER. THERE'S RARELY TIME TO REACH STOWED LIFE JACKETS.

THE U.S. COAST GUARD AND THE COAST GUARD AUXILIARY CHALLENGES YOU AND YOUR PASSENGERS TO WEAR YOUR LIFE JACKET ALL THE TIME WHILE UNDERWAY. THERE'S NO EXCUSE NOT TO WEAR A LIFE JACKET ON THE WATER!

THIS MESSAGE WAS BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

THE UNITED STATES COAST GUARD AUXILIARY 10-6 WILMINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA.

...YOU'RE IN COMMAND. BOAT RESPONSIBLY!...
