SAFE BOATING WEEK
National Safe Boating Week is May 21-27 and the Tennessee Wildlife
Resources Agency will be participating to promote the wearing of life
jackets as the summer boating season begins.
On Saturday, May 21, Ready, Set, Wear It!, will enter its seventh year
in trying to bring awareness on the importance of life jacket wear by
holding a world record day.
The worldwide event kicks off the start of National Safe Boating Week.
Participants will be part of the attempt to break a world record for the
most life jackets worn at one time.
Both events help usher in National Safe Boating Week which is annually
held the week prior to Memorial Day Weekend. Boating partners across the
United States and Canada are teaming to promote safe boating practices,
including the wear of life jackets for National Safe Boating Week and
throughout the 2016 boating season.
The goal of National Safe Boating Week is to educate the public about
the importance of safe boating practices and wearing life jackets while
on the water.
