Have Enough Life Jackets for Everyone on Your Boat?

If you’re seeking relief from temperatures in the mid-90s through at least Wednesday by getting your boat out on the water, make sure you have enough life jackets.

Iowa DNR Conservation Officer for Floyd and Mitchell counties, Jacob Fulk says you must have a life jacket for everyone on your boat and water enthusiasts associated with your boat.

Fulk says most enforcement of the adequate number of life jackets is zero-tolerance and reminds boaters that anyone 13 or younger must wear a life jacket at all times.

Fulk also advises checking your life jackets for rips and tears because they can wear out and make them ineffective in a water emergency.
