Have an old, worn out life jacket?

Well May 19th marks the start of National Safe Boating Week!To celebrate, the Arizona Game and Fish Department wants to swap old life jackets for new ones (while supplies last). 2018 also marks the 10-year anniversary of the Arizona Game and Fish Department’s (AZGFD) life jacket exchange program, and it’s starting with a statewide push to ensure everyone in Arizona is safe on the water this summer.

Before heading out on the water, it’s important that boaters check to ensure that their life jackets are in good condition and that they are the right size and fit for passengers. When inspecting life jackets, look for any rips or tears, missing straps, broken fasteners, and to ensure that the flotation hasn’t shifted. Based on observations from AZGFD’s boating education program, life jackets should be inspected each boating season due to the environment’s impact on their materials. State law also requires all passengers 12 years old and younger to wear a life jacket while on board and each passenger must have a properly fitting, U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jacket available.

So before heading out onto the water this summer make sure to swing by Lake Havasu State Park, Windsor 4 (171 London Bridge Rd.) on May 19th to exchange their life jackets not only to help themselves but the environment as well. 

Note:Type I and Type II life jackets will not be accepted. They will only exchange ski vest styles only.
