SAFE BOATING STARTS  BEFORE YOU GET TO THE RAMP 

 

Be a 4th of July holiday safe boater

Boating is one of many ways we celebrate the Fourth of July holiday. The USCG Auxiliary has reminders for ways to safely enjoy a day on the water with friends and family.

Boaters should not take safety for granted. We  suggest ways boaters may reduce the risk of incidents and help ensure a safe and enjoyable day on the water.

 

- Wear a Life Jacket – Children under age 13 and anybody on a personal watercraft are required by law to wear a United States Coast Guard-approved personal flotation device. People being towed by a boat on skis, a tube, or other similar device also must wear a life jacket.

 

- Avoid Alcohol – Boat operators can become impaired with less alcohol than motor vehicle drivers due to heat and dehydration. Boating Under the Influence is a criminal violation and is enforced actively in Nevada.

 

- Have All Required Safety Equipment – This will help boaters be prepared if an emergency occurs. Life jackets, throw cushions, fire extinguishers and bailing devices are required on most boats.  For safe boating information on Lake Mead, go to https://www.nps.gov/lake/planyourvisit/boating.htm

 

- Be Wary of Surroundings – The best boat operators constantly are looking around for other boats, personal watercraft, swimmers, stumps and other hazards. Speeds in excess of 5 mph are prohibited if within 30 yards of any other vessel, swimming area or dock. Keep an eye on the weather forecast. For Lake Mead weather, go to: http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?zoneid=AZZ036

 

- Take a Boating Safety Course – Anyone born after Dec. 31, 1985, who operates a motorboat or personal watercraft in Nevada must have successfully completed a boating safety course.
