Life Jackets Worn...Nobody Mourns

 

Every year thousands of people in the United States mourn the loss of loved ones that could have survived if they were wearing a life jacket while recreating on our nation’s waters. Over the past twenty years 89% of all water related fatalities involve people not wearing life jackets.

 

 The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers would like to remind you that life jackets save lives, so please wear it when visiting your local Corps of Engineers lake.

Check out PleaseWearIt.com to find valuable tips and resources that could save your life or the life of someone you care about.
