Be safe, be smart!

The best way you can help us is by helping yourself!  Be a safe boater, and be a smart boater!!  The more you prepare for your day on the water and the more you know, the less likely you will need to call on us to get you out of trouble!

– Get your Pleasure Craft Operator’s Card
– Take a boating course through the Canadian Power and Sail Squadron
– Make sure you have all the required safety equipment on your boat before you go
– Make sure your vessel is running properly and is seaworthy
– Check the marine forecast, and watch for changes in the weather
– Take a cell phone, or better yet, a VHF marine radio
– Let someone know where you are going and how long you will be out
– Be prepared for an emergency and know what to do
– Don’t cruise with booze
– Always wear your lifejacket
