Twenty-one recreational boating safety organizations, including the Sea Tow Foundation, recently signed the 2012-2016 Strategic Plan for the Coast Guard's National Recreational Boating Safety Program.

"The Sea Tow Foundation will be working with the Coast Guard and other recreational boating safety partners to ensure that boating is safe and enjoyable through the continuation of our successful Life Jacket Loaner Program, as well as the development of new programs that address the mission of the foundation and the objectives outlined in the strategic plan," Gail Kulp, executive director of the foundation, said in a statement.

The plan will utilize 11 broad objectives and specific strategies deemed necessary to attain the goals that will carry out the mission of the program.

The plan was drafted by members of the Strategic Planning Panel of the National Boating Safety Advisory Council, which provides advice and recommendations about matters relating to recreational boating safety to the Department of Homeland Security.
