An orange sticker from the Sturgeon Bay U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary on your boat could be as important as the life jacket in it. Since first responders in northern Door County reported an uptick in watercrafts floating in area waters unattended, the U.S.Coast Guard Auxiliary has worked hard to make sure more boaters have the time-saving decals. By having them affixed to the vessel, first responders can try to contact the owner before a large scale response even begins. Vice Flotilla Commander Jeff Feuerstein says the response has been great.
Feuerstein says you can pick up the stickers at some local businesses, the Sister Bay-Liberty Grove Fire Department, and from the U.S. Power Squadron tent at this weekend’s Marina Fest.
