Warmer weather doesn't equal safer waters

Though days are getting warmer, people are still urged to keep more than just air temperature in mind when enjoying sports on the water. DNR Conservation Warden Chris Kratcha says there are waters that are still quite cold. He emphasizes that regardless of what the law states, people should wear their life jackets.

 

 

Kratcha stated that people could lose body heat twenty-five times faster in cold water and lose their dexterity. He adds that accidents happen quickly and people don’t often prepare for them, and having a lifejacket for the whole boat ride is superior to searching for a flotation device during an emergency.
