Life Jackets Save Lives

Posted: Updated:

Slowly but surely, the weather will be warming up and so will the waters.

Many people have already started to clean up their boats and jet skis in preparation of some fun water activities. But, with the fun comes the responsibility of safe and responsible boating. While you're on the water, it's important to remember the value of a life jacket.

“A lot of times with boating, you’re out at night. And even if you are a great swimmer, there are circumstances where you have clothes on or the water is cold. You always should wear a life jacket,” says Scott Doering, Vallely Sport & Marine.

If you're using a personal watercraft such as a jet ski you need to be wearing your life jacket. If you're on a boat, you must have one in your possession.
