Headed out on the water this weekend? Be sure to develop a Float Plan and leave it with someone on shore! Include important information for a friend or family member to call authorities if they don’t hear back from you in a designated time.

BoatSafe.com suggests the following details to comprise a detailed Float Plan:

-Name, address, & phone number of trip leader and passengers

-Boat type and registration

-Trip itinerary

-Type of communication and signal equipment on board

Upon arrival, check in with your designed shore person!
