The sixth video in America’s Boating Channel’s™ sixth season of boating safety and boater education videos, “LIFE JACKET WEAR,” will debut this Saturday morning July 23 at 9 AM Eastern Daylight Time (EDT).
The new title will be featured on AmericasBoatingChannel.com, America’s Boating Channel on YouTube, and across online social media as a mid-summer fundamental safety reminder to boaters. The video service showcased boating-under-the-influence (BUI) prevention videos over the Fourth of July holiday weekend to support the Operation Dry Water campaign.
“LIFE JACKET WEAR” covers the benefits of wearing a life jacket whenever underway in a recreational vessel and the dangers of not doing so. Viewers will learn how to don a life jacket in the water – and how difficult that can be. Also featured are tips for setting an example by wearing a life jacket
The new video exclusively features members of the Chattanooga Sail & Power Squadron, coordinated by squadron field producer Sue Kuemmel.
