Yes, Personal Flotation Devices (life jackets) really do save lives, but only if they are worn. 

Not convinced, consider this – In 2008, of the 709 total Fatal Boating Accidents, 510 were by drowning, but only 46 of those who drowned were wearing Life Jackets. In other words, you are 11 times more likely to drown if you are not wearing a Personal Flotation Device.

Learn more about PFDs by taking one of our boating safety courses in Mandeville at the Pontchartrain Yacht Club or in Madisonville at the Town Hall. See the 2010 Calendar for dates and locations.

Northlake Flotilla 42 has proudly served the needs of the boating public in Mandeville, Madisonville, Covington and neighboring areas on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain for over 27 years. To learn more about us, becoming a member of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary and how we serve to increase recreational boating safety, visit Contact Us. However, no matter where you live, you are welcome to attend any of our classes.
