Help Spread The Word - Boat Safety This Memorial Day Weekend
The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has this important safety reminder that 
life jackets save lives and it's essential to operate watercraft sober. So far in 2024 there has been 
one boating fatality in the state. In 2023, there were 28 boating fatalities, 27 of which involved a 
victim not wearing a life jacket. Operator inexperience, inattention, recklessness and speeding are
the four leading causes of tragic watercraft crashes, and the leading cause of death is drowning.
