#SafetyTipTuesday #LifejacketsSaveLives
One fun summer activity is spending time in and/or on the water, but each year hundreds of lives are lost... thousands are injured... and millions of dollars of property damage occurs because of preventable recreational boating accidents on U.S. waterways. Too often, pleasure outings turn tragic. You as a boat operator, passenger, or concerned individual can make a difference.
Human error remains the leading cause of boating accidents. Learn the rules, your responsibilities, and how to safely operate your power, sail, or human-propelled vessel.
The U.S. Coast Guard estimates that life jackets (PFD) could have saved the lives of over 80 percent of boating fatality victims. Accidents can, and do happen with terrifying speed on the water. There's rarely time to reach stowed life jackets. There's no excuse not to wear a life jacket on the water!
Life jackets must be Coast Guard approved, in good and serviceable condition, and the appropriate size for the intended user.
As the boat operator, you are responsible for the safety of your passengers.

Congress created the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation to lead a nationwide effort to honor America’s fallen firefighters. Since 1992, the non-profit Foundation has developed and expanded programs that fulfill that mandate. Our mission is to honor and remember America’s fallen fire heroes and to provide resources to assist their survivors in rebuilding their lives and work within the fire service community to reduce firefighter deaths and injuries.

Each October, the Foundation sponsors the official national tribute to all firefighters who died in the line of duty during the previous year. Thousands attend the weekend activities held at the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg, Maryland. The Weekend features special programs for survivors and coworkers along with moving public ceremonies.
