WaterWise Wisdom Presentation Topics

PREPARE IT - Preparation is the key to prevention.

Know before you go - Being informed is just as important as being prepared. Knowing the risks and open water hazards involved with the activities you take part in may help prevent an incident from occuring.

Trip plan -  Always make a plan and leave it with a responsible person before you go. If no one knows you are gone, no one will be looking for you.

Bring the essentials - Being prepared also means having the right gear. Use a Pre-Departure Checklist to ensure you have the right equipment with you before you go out on the water.

WEAR IT - It won't work if you don't wear it. 

Check the Label - Carry a Canadian-approved lifejacket for everyone on board.

Check the Condition - Check the zippers, buckles, fabric, seams, etc.

Check the Size - Check that they are properly sized to fit each person on board. 

Check Yourself - Swimmers need to wear lifejackets too. 

KNOW IT - It could save your life.
