Alex Hinson, Boating Education Coordinator for the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission said it's important for program participants to know that everyone who takes the course still must pass an in-person exam at a testing site. "Arizona's boating season has returned and many have already hit the water".

The annual event, hosted by the National Safe Boating Council (NSBC) serves as a fun, educational element just prior to National Safe Boating Week, May 20-26, in educating the boating public about the safety and comfort of life jackets has been a main focus of the North American Safe Boating Campaign.

"We will be trying to break the world record for wearing life jackets", said center director Denise Wolvin.

The Wear Your Life Jacket to Work Day is today with the goal of demonstrating how easy it is to wear a life jacket.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) would be watching the banks "very, very carefully indeed", he said. Only Australia's five biggest banks will be hit with the new tax which will be on liabilities.


In 2015, 10,917 participants from 11 countries and several dogs, put on their life jackets to participate in the event. "I have never in all my years of working recovered a victim who was wearing a life jacket". "If an accident occurs and you suddenly end up overboard, a life jacket will keep your head above water and could save your life".

Both events help usher in National Safe Boating Week which is annually held the week prior to Memorial Day Weekend.

Safe boating week is May 20th to the 26th. The event is created to highlight comfort and ease of life jacket use.
