Wear your life jacket to work day kicks off TWRA safe boating week

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WDEF) – To kick off the 2016 National Safe Boating Week (May 21-27) the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency promotes the “Wear Your Life Jacket to Work Day.”

That happens Friday, May 20th.

The goal is to demonstrate just how easy it is to wear a life jacket.

Those who wear a life jacket to work are asked to have a photograph taken and email it here.

Group photos are also welcome.

Then on Saturday, May 21, Ready, Set, Wear It!, will enter its seventh year in trying to bring awareness on the importance of life jacket wear by holding a world record day.

Participants will be part of the attempt to break a world record for the most life jackets worn at one time.

Both events help usher in National Safe Boating Week which is annually held the week prior to Memorial Day Weekend. Boating partners across the United States and Canada are teaming to promote safe boating practices, including the wear of life jackets for National Safe Boating Week and throughout the 2016 boating season.
