A Lifejacket Can't Save Anyone If All People Onboard Don't Wear One

  • Children aged 12 and under MUST wear Coast Guard-approved lifejackets at all times when on the river.
  • Jackets must fit appropriately, and be fully fastened to be effective. Wearing a life jacket is not just common sense, it is THE LAW.
  • Lifejackets aren't just for kids. Any person paddling or boating MUST have their own US Coast Guard approved lifejacket or PFD onboard and readily accessible in case of emergency.
  • All boaters must wear lifejackets on boats less than 16 feet in length and on canoes and on kayaks, from November 1 through April 30, to protect boaters from cold water shock if they fall into the water.
  • Always wear your lifejacket on and in the water.
