The National Weather Service has partnered with the National Safe Boating Council, a NOAA Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador™ to help promote safe boating practices. The Council offers a wealth of  free resources such as infographics, videos, audio clips, fact sheets, social media and much more. 

During Safe Boating Week, NWS will send a Public Information Statement and broadcast public service announcements on NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards. Check out NWS staff, TV meteorologists and many others wearing their life jackets to work to emphasis how important it is to wear your life jacket when you're on the water.
