Mayor Bill Collins joined with the Charleston Sailing and Power Squadron in proclaiming this to be National Boat Safety Week from May 18 through May 24. The theme of this year is “Wear It.” The death toll from last year is up 700 deaths nationally this year over last year. People wearing life vests instead of storing them on the boat could have saved many lives. Let’s all enjoy the water this year and be safe. Wear the life vest and put one on every child. It’s the law if the child is 12 or under. Get your boat safety inspected, it’s free. Make boating fun. Pictured with Mayor Collins is Karl Naugle, Executive Officer.
