>2010 Safe Boating Campaign & Outreach Fulfillment Center

>The Fifth Coast Guard District in collaboration with the National Safe Boating Council (NSBC) and other safety partners are committed to ensuring recreational boaters enjoy a safe boating season. To do this, we are launching a 2010 Safe Boating Campain to deliver vital messages to boaters that encourage the wearing of life jackets, boater education, and safe and responsible boat operation that will contribute to reducing accidents and fatalities. This year’s campaign begins with National Safe Boating Week (NSBW), scheduled for May 22-28, 2010.

Also, the Fifth District’s Outreach Innovation Center provides professionally designed boating safety displays and accessories through its website www.uscga5sr.com. Once at the web site, click on “Sammy the Sea Otter” in the lower left margin to access the Outreach Web page.
