Congratulations to Charles Kelley, who is being recognized by our Flotilla Commander, Charles Hurley, for his participation in the 2017 Life Jacket Ware Rate Study.

Because so many drownings could be prevented if every boater wore a life jacket, it is critical that boating safety advocates understand the circumstances and patterns in which life jackets are used in order to tailor messages and safety education programs accordingly.
