With Memorial Day coming up this weekend, now is the perfect time to brush up on boating safety. In April, I visited with the Massachusetts Environmental Police to film a boating safety and regulations video. The video explains all the required and recommended equipment that boat operators must keep on their boats while operating on Massachusetts inland waterways or coastline. Officer Tara Carlow demonstrated life jacket safety tips with me on their dock near the U.S.S Constitution in Charlestown.

For more information on boating on the waters of the Commonwealth, why don’t you check out a boat safety class run by the Environmental Police in your area?

In need of quick reference?  Check out the “Boat Massachusetts” handbook provided by the Environmental Police’s online FAQ section about boat safety.
