Four Tips For Boating Safety This Summer

By Timothy Bussey on May 28, 2013

Colorado Boating SafetyMemorial Day marks the official start of summer for many Colorado residents, and with summer comes the opportunity to engage in summer fun – including boating and swimming. If you’re planning on boating this summer, keep the following safety tips in mind to help you and your loved ones avoid accidents:

  • Buy and wear life jackets. Personal flotation devices (PFDs) can help boaters and operators of personal watercraft survive an accident in which they are flung into the water, even if they are knocked unconscious or become otherwise incapable of keeping themselves afloat. Bring the proper life jackets for every member of your boating party and wear them – no matter how strong your swimming skills are.
