From our friends at the National Safety Council, here’s a few quick boating safety tips and reminders for our RNO family!
Before setting out:
- Check that your equipment is in good working order; get a free vessel safety check with your local U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary or U.S. Power Squadron.
- Review a pre-departure checklist to ensure you have everything you need in your boat, including a tool kit and first-aid kit.
- Before you leave, always file a float plan with someone you trust.
- Don’t forget the sunscreen and know the signs of heat illnesses.
