Kids Wear It! Kids Wear It! Presentation Transcript

  •  
  • FOR ALL BOATERS: Your life jacket could save your life.
  • POWERBOATERS: Safe and responsible boating starts with all boaters in a boat wearing their life jacket at all time while on the water.
  • PADDLERS: Either as part of a tandem boat or as an individual, life jacket wear is a personal responsibility.
  • REMEMBER: It’s not enough to simply carry life jackets; you have to wear one. Accidents on the water happen too fast to reach stowed life jackets.
  • Life jackets for YOU: Life jackets meant for adults do not work for kids. Proper fit of a life jacket means it fits snugly, it’s buckled, or zipped up, and is appropriate for your weight.
  • Choose a properly fitted life jacket. Check the manufacturer’s ratings for size and weight and make sure it’s USCG-approved. Proper fit BAD FIT
  • The Law and You Each state has different laws that apply to kids and certain water activities. A Federal law is also in place that requires kids under 13 to wear a life jacket.
  • The Law and You While there are very few laws that require adults to wear life jackets. Life jacket wear is a matter of survival for everyone. It also sets a good example for other boaters.
  • To ALWAYS wear his or her life jacket. Accidents on the water happen too fast to reach stowed life jackets. The #1 thing any boater can do:
  • What you can do: In addition to wearing your life jacket, remind other boaters about the importance of life jacket wear.
  • You are the next generation of boaters: Your actions serve as a constant reminder that everyone must always wear a life jacket. When other kids grow up they then provide an example to the next generation of boaters.
  • YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
