Remember life jacket while enjoying the holidays
The law requires that all vessels have a life jacket for each person on board
LA CROSSE, Wis (WKBT) – Long summer days are meant for forgetting about the hassles of life, but one thing to remember is safety while on the water.
While you’re out on the boat or kayaking down a river, don’t forget your life jackets.
Drowning accidents can happen at any time, so it’s always better to be safe and make sure you bring one if you venture out onto the water.
River currents can easily change when a boat passes by… and the waves may be stronger than you think.
Also, the law requires that all vessels have a life jacket for each person on board, which includes canoes, kayaks, and paddleboards.
Life jackets have changed a lot over the years.
You can find comfortable, lightweight, and stylish options at local stores or even online.
