Milwaukee‚ WI – Milwaukee Community Sailing Center joins boating safety advocates around the world in hosting a Ready‚ Set‚ Wear It Life Jacket event in their local community. These events are part of the yearlong Safe Boating Campaign to promote boating safety and voluntary‚ consistent wear of life jackets and offered by partners around the world from May - September each year.

“This event is a great opportunity to inspect your life jacket and get a refresher on boating safety as you join thousands of people to set a world record‚” said Yvonne Pentz‚ communications director of the National Safe Boating Council‚ and lead organization for Ready‚ Set‚ Wear It.

U.S. Coast Guard statistics show that drowning was the reported cause of death in four out of every five
recreational boating fatalities in 2017‚ and that 84.5 percent of those who drowned were not wearing life jackets.

The local event will feature Life Jacket safety with MCSC instructors and a team from West Marine; Flare
Demonstrations; Fire Extinguisher demonstrations‚ with the Milwaukee Fire Department on the MFD boat
“Trident”; the Department of Natural Resources Warden boat and team; the Coast Guard Auxiliary will also be discussing Life Jacket safety; the American Red Cross; and Wisconsin Sea Grant to talk about Rip Currents and Hypothermia. Additional presenters: MMSD and the Milwaukee Aquatics team.
