Boating safety stressed with marine traffic increasing

The United States Coast Guard based in Sturgeon Bay reminds boaters to prepare as the unofficial beginning of summer occurs this weekend. This week is National Safe Boating Week, and Lake Michigan and Green Bay are expected to be extremely busy during the holiday weekend. USCG Petty Officer Michael Padden shares the wide variety of safety supplies that all boaters should carry onboard. 



Padden recommends having a plan, including telling a friend where you are going and keeping an eye on the weather. The United States Coast Guard has a mobile app available online.



The app also has a red button for immediately contact you to emergency assistance. National Safe Boating Week is a national effort to encourage boaters to make the most of their boating.
