Today Is “Wear Your Lifejacket at Work Day” — Send Us Your Pics!

In Wednesday’s ‘Lectronic we talked about this year’s National Safe Boating Week. Along with tomorrow’s Water Safety Fair at the Fort Baker-based Coast Guard station, the week is being marked by today’s event, “Wear Your Lifejacket at Work Day.”

The day is part of the Safe Boating Campaign organized by the National Safe Boating Council, a nonprofit dedicated to helping create a safe boating experience for all boaters.

“The NSBC can’t wait to see the creative and fun ways boaters wear their life jacket at work for a chance to win a prize,” National Safe Boating Council’s communications director Yvonne Pentz said.

No matter where you’re working, you can join in the fun by wearing your life jacket and posting creative pictures on social media for a chance to win a prize.

Here’s how to participate:

  1. Wear a life jacket wherever you work.
  2. Snap a picture.
  3. Post the picture on social media with the hashtag #wearyourlifejacketatworkday.
  4. Tag the Safe Boating Campaign (@boatingcampaign).

Boaters will be randomly selected to win prizes from the Safe Boating Campaign throughout the day.

Make sure you’re in the know by following @boatingcampaign on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter for the latest updates.

National Safe Boating Week will be held from May 20–26, 2023, reminding all boaters to brush up on boating safety skills and prepare for the boating season. This observance week is the annual kickoff of the Safe Boating Campaign, a global awareness effort that encourages boaters to make the most of their boating adventure by being responsible.
