Free Boat Safety Inspections in June

Ohio Department of Natural Resources -- The agency will continue free boat safety inspections during June at public boat launch ramps and during special events statewide. ODNR has also released a new promotional video about safe boating.  The inspections help increase boating safety awareness at a time when many Ohioans are launching their boats for the first time in a new boating and fishing season. Division of Watercraft officers provide written courtesy inspections that allow boat owners to make recommended improvements to their boating safety equipment.   The inspections typically examine the condition of fire extinguishers, navigational lights, horns and distress signals. Officers also check to make sure that the proper type, size and number of life jackets are aboard each boat as required by law to ensure the safety of all boat occupants, according to the agency.
