With the May long weekend fast approaching, many of us will be on the water over the next few days and months as summer sets in. That's why this is the perfect time to think about boating safety and observe the 2015 North American Safe Boating Awareness Week from May 16-22.
At the core of the 2015 campaign are five key messages consistently delivered to the boating community.
- Wear a PFD or lifejacket
- Don’t drink and boat
- Take a boating course
- Be prepared, both you and your vessel
- Be wary of the dangers of cold water immersion.
Please share these messages with friends and family, and visit the Canadian Safe Boating Council website to find out more.
