2017 Get Home Tonight Campaign  

In 2015 Flotilla 59 launched the Get Home Tonight campaign to encourage boaters to be Safe on the water and Prepared for all emergencies.

Safety begins with boater education by completing a boating safety or skills course.

 Preparedness begins with an annual Vessel Safety Check for your boat.

Join Flotilla 59 by taking a course and having your boat inspected for a safer boating year. 

Vessel Safety Check   

A courtesy examination of your boat (Vessel) to verify the presence and condition of the Safety Equipment required by State and Federal regulations.

 

US Coast Guard Auxiliary Examiners
