Life Jacket Loaner Program
This project by the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary is specifically designed to increase lifejacket wear during boating activities.
The program is comprised of establishing kiosks or booths at public facilities where boaters may borrow, at no cost, appropriate lifejackets for use while they are on the water. Local Auxiliary flotillas will maintain these kiosks or booths in locations highly visible to the boating public, and will provide the lifejackets as well as other safety information.
The Life Jacket Loaner Program uses pre-designed materials lists and provides resource recommendations to obtain the required items. Our fundraising effort provides the participating Auxiliary flotillas with funds to purchase needed materials and equipment. This is an on-going program, with the goal of at least 1 kiosk per Coast Guard Auxiliary District.
