Summer has arrived and that means it is time to go boating.
Alaska has around 34,000 miles of coast line and 365,000 miles of rivers with people living, working, exploring and enjoying them. But, some also get in boating accidents of all sorts.
As we prepare for the boating season it is worthwhile to review the equipment and safety precautions needed.
On this week’s episode of Outdoor Explorer, we discuss boating safety with staff from the Alaska Office of Boating Safety, Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium’s Injury Prevention program, the Kingikmiut Singers and Dancers of Anchorage and the Maniilaq Association of Kotzebue.
