The goal of National Safe Boating Week is to educate the public about the importance of safe boating practices and wearing life jackets while on the water. In addition to legally required equipment, such as life jackets and fire extinguishers, always carry a first-aid kit, nautical charts and an anchor.

Stay alert while boating as well. Be sure to check that navigation lights work. That's why the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, the boating safety component of Team Coast Guard, urges people to have one on at all times.
