Jim Vass, national commodore of the Coast Guard Auxiliary, signed the Strategic Plan of the National Recreational Boating Safety Program for 2012-16.

The plan, drafted by a team from the National Boating Safety Advisory Council, the Coast Guard Office of Auxiliary and Boating Safety and other boating safety experts, outlines key performance goals and objectives necessary to reduce recreational boating fatalities and injuries during the next five years.

The objectives identified in the plan include safety education certificates and course completions; boating safety outreach; advanced and/or on-water skills-based boating education; life jacket wear; operator compliance; navigation rules; boating under the influence; manufacturer compliance; operator compliance with Coast Guard-required safety equipment; boating accident reporting; research and development and the effectiveness of grants to non-profit organizations.

"The Coast Guard Auxiliary looks forward to our continued participation in the overall plan improving the safety of boaters nationwide," Vass said in a statement.
