Webster Parish raises awareness for National Safe Boating Week

So many people throughout Webster Parish celebrated #wearyourlifejackettoworktoday on May 21 to help promote National Safe Boating Week. 

Wear Your Life Jacket at Work Day helps kickoff National Safe Boating Week, taking place May 22-28, 2021. Help usher in the summer boating season by refreshing yourself and your loved ones on the importance of always wearing a life jacket, and adopting other safe boating behaviors.

Why Wear Your Life Jacket at Work Day? In 2019, the U.S. Coast Guard reported that 86% of drowning victims were not wearing a life jacket. We want to help reverse this statistic. Life jackets should be worn at all times on the water and Wear Your Life Jacket at Work Day is a great way to show the world it’s normal, expected (and comfortable!) to wear a life jacket.

Be safe out there this Summer.
