Summer of Safety
With boating season officially beginning this weekend, state agencies are teaming up to keep you safe on the water.
Three Georgia State Agencies teamed up today to promote their "Summer of Safety" Program.
The message is to stay safe on the highways and waterways.
Officers say there is a zero tolerance policy for boating under the influence.
They also say simple proactive steps like using safety devices will result in fewer people getting hurt.
Before you get out on the water, always make sure you have a life jacket for everyone on board.
Additionally, you are required to have a fire extinguisher and the vessel registered in your name.
