Safe Boating Week Kicks Off

Members of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Fond du Lac Flotilla are promoting the kick off of Safe Boating Week with a free boat inspection today. James Haase says one of the things they do is stress the importance of wearing life jackets when you are out on the water. He says four people have drowned in the state already this year and those tragedies might have been averted if they had been wearing a life jacket or PFD. He says the week is designed to promote safe boating. The free boat inspection is this afternoon from 1 to 4 p.m. at Tuffy’s Outpost in Fond du Lac.
