Safety and Education has been busy behind the scenes ordering First Aid supplies, scheduling fire extinguisher inspections, and working with the Coast Guard Auxiliary to plan Vessel Safety Checks. Lots of fun educational programming is in the works too!
Vessel Safety Checks
With a Vessel Safety Check, you will have the peace of mind that your boat meets federal safety standards and that in an emergency, you will have the necessary equipment to save lives and summon help. In many cases, boating insurance agencies offer discounts for vessels which undergo a Vessel Safety Check every year. If your boat does not pass, no citation is issued at that time. Instead, you are provided a written report on how to correct any discrepancies. As soon as a date is confirmed for this Safety Check by the Coast Guard, it will be shared via email, Facebook, and flyers at the club.
First Aid Kits
First Aid kits will be fully stocked by May 13th. A map of first aid kit locations will be shared.
