National Boating Safety Week – life jackets

Monday of National Boating Safety Week and the focus is on life jackets. It has even been declared “Wear your life jacket to work day!” Which I can’t do because my life jackets are on my boat, and so it seems a rather odd campaign.

However, life jackets are important, so I found this video that demonstrates how your auto inflate life jacket works. Auto inflate life jackets have their limitations, but they have one huge advantage over other types: people are more likely to wear them!

If you enjoyed that video, here is another. And yet another. But that is really tomorrow’s theme!

Keep safe, keep learning
