Be careful on the water.
In the last three weeks, the Kansas City Area has experienced three drownings on our lakes and rivers. Boaters frequently skip the life jackets as they are over confident that nothing will happen to them. The problem lies with accidents. Accidents are just that, they are un-intentional cases of bad judgement. Even if you are not the person making a reckless decision out on the water, you can fall victim to someone making those bad decisions. Always wear your life jacket and don’t assume that accidents can’t happen to you. And as always, don’t drink out on the water. Read our suggested boating safety equipment list for more info.
