>National Transportation Safety Board Removes Recreational Boating From Its Most Wanted List

>The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) today updated its “Most Wanted List” of Transportation Safety Improvements directed at state governments by adding a new issue area – motorcycle safety – and dropping another – recreational boating – where substantial progress has been made. The changes were announced today at a press conference in Washington, D.C.

As such, we can thank our Fifth Coast Guard District Recreational Boasting Safety (RBS) specialist, Mr. Dennis Sens, in contributing to this noteworthy success. In addition, throughout the Fifth District, we have exprienced many RBS successes due to dedicated and concerted efforts by Coast Guard and Auxiliary members alike.

Although the NTSB has removed Recreational Boating from their Most Wanted list, the Fifth Coast Guard District will continue to place a significant emphasis on the RBS program.

Excellent job by all!
