NSBC Wear Your Life Jacket To Work Day
Friday, May 19, 2017, 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM
is not Required
Just ahead of Memorial Day each year, the National Safe Boating Council (NSBC) sponsors an event to remind boaters of how important it is to wear a life jacket when you are out on the water. On Friday May 19, everyone is invited to participate in “Wear Your Life Jacket to Work Day.” Learn how to join in, and how you can post photos of your life jacketed colleagues by visiting the NSBC’s web site at www.safeboatingcouncil.org/wear-it-campaign. On the following day, May 20, the organizers of “Ready, Set, Wear It! Life Jacket World Record Day” will try to set a new record for the number of life jackets worn, and inflatable life jackets inflated, on one day. Both of these events can be photographed and documented to record how many people attended and wore their life jackets. (The record to beat this year is 10,917.)
