Coast Guard urging boat safety this week


The weather is heating up and Memorial Day weekend is right around the corner, so that means folks will be getting their boats in the water.

The Coast Guard wants to remind everyone to stay safe on the water.

Saturday starts national safe boating week.

The Coast Guard is urging Great Lakes boaters to not only have life jackets for every person aboard their vessels as required by law, but to go one step further and ensure everyone aboard is wearing a life jacket at all times while on the water.
