The Nevada Department of Wildlife along with local U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary and several private businesses in Nevada are joining boating safety advocates across the U.S. and Canada to promote safe and responsible boating during National Safe Boating Week, May 17-23 and through the entire summer. The national effort in late May is the kick off for a number of programs conducted by NDOW, including new life jacket "loaner" stations, a life jacket giveaway program, outreach to paddle craft users and a boating safety incentive program sponsored by several marinas on Lakes Mead and Mohave. Nevada’s Governor, Brian Sandoval, also signed a proclamation endorsing the Silver State’s participation in the national effort.
"We want people to take advantage of Nevada’s recreational opportunities and to have a good time, but we also want them to come home safe," said Game Warden Captain David Pfiffner, boating law administrator, NDOW. "The best two ways to be a safe boater are to take a boating education course and to always wear a life jacket."
