Miramichi boating safety

Miramichi police constable Chris Hogan is reminding you about boating safety.

Anyone who operates a motorized vessel must have a boating competency card.

Boaters must have a life jacket for each person on board, even if it’s a human powered watercraft like a kayak or canoe.

Basic safety items are buoyant heaving line, paddle; anchor, bailers; watertight flashlight, a sound signaling device and a fire extinguisher.
