Boating Safety: Protect Your Kids

Boating is one of summer’s best things to do, especially in Northwest Florida. You can see the sandy white beaches, enjoy the beautiful water, and usually see a marine animal or two. And usually, those that take a boat out to enjoy, take their children along with them. There is no reason not to take the kids along. But make sure they’re protected.

Safe Kids Worldwide suggests:

Each child should always wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jacket.

Make sure the jacket fit snugly and properly. It should not rise to hit the chin or ears when the child’s arms are extended.

Adults should never drink alcohol while boating, so they can safely supervise children.

Protect a little one from getting chilled with a light blanket or towel.

All adults should learn CPR.

If you choose to let your child swim, make sure the child is able to understand potential dangers, including uneven footing, sea currents and changes in weather.
