Sea Tow Foundation seeks hosts for life-jacket loaner stands

Publish date:

The Sea Tow Foundation said it is accepting applications from nonprofit organizations and local law enforcement and government agencies throughout the country that wish to host a Sea Tow Foundation Life Jacket Loaner Station in their community.

To help promote proper life jacket use, the foundation stocks more than 400 loaner stations nationwide, where boaters can borrow life jackets free for the day.

The program began in 2008. It has been funded through donations and grants. More than 40,000 courtesy life jackets have been loaned through the program.

“The Sea Tow Foundation’s life jacket stations save the day for boaters who discover, at the ramp or on the marina dock, that they don’t have enough PFDs for everyone on board or need a different size to fit a guest or a child,” Sea Tow Foundation executive director Michael Wesolowski said in a statement. “Life jackets save lives, and we are excited to welcome our new 2018 grant applicants into this vital safety program.”
