Bloglines - When It Comes to Boating Safety Equipment Your Life Jacket (PFD) Is Just the Start - Additional Equipment Can Help Save Your Life
Bloglines user Lawboat (email@example.com) has sent this item to you.
Federal, State and Local laws require that every vessel should have a Personnel Flotation Device (PFD) or life jacket for each person on board a vessel. These laws go on to say that these PFD's must be readily accessible, in case they are needed in an emergency. The concept of "readily accessible" confuses many boaters. We in the Coast Guard Auxiliary know this to be true, because we find life jackets in the strangest of places when we conduct a Vessel Safety Check (VSC). Readily accessible means that you can instantly locate, remove, distribute and don your PFD's in the fastest time possible. [PRWEB Jul 1, 2005]
