As boaters head out to enjoy summer vacation, the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office has issued some reminders intended to help them to enjoy the water, safely.
So, before heading out, be sure to file a float plan. That’s critical in the event of an emergency and will give search and rescue crews a huge advantage, in knowing where to begin, the sheriff’s office post says.
Also, before hitting the water, be sure you have these items on your boat:
- Life jackets
- Fire extinguishers
- Visual distress signals
- Sound-producing devices
- Locator device
- Navigation lights
