Free Life Jackets and Vessel Safety Checks

The U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, Flotilla 88 of Lake County, will hold its annual life jacket giveaway for children tomorrow and offer a free vessel safety check. The life jacket giveaway will begin at 9:30 a.m. at the gazebo at Redbud Park on Lakeshore Drive in Clearlake. It will last until 1PM, or until they run out of life jackets for kids for kids 12 years of age and under. A parent or guardian must accompany the child and must complete an information slip to be eligible. The vessel safety check will start at 9:30AM at the marina at Redbud Park. Qualified vessel examiners for boat owners will be on hand. Boats can be on a trailer or in the water at the docks.
