Power and sail squadron raise the safe-boating flag at City Hall

The Barrie Power & Sail Squadron is launching this year’s safety week with a flag raising at City Hall at 1645 this Thursday (May 16).
Mayor Lehman will be doing the honour of raising the flag and issuing a supportive proclamation. However, it is not the flag ceremony that is of the most importance, it is about an opportunity to remind the boating public of good safety practices while they are enjoying time on the water. 
The safety messages remain the same, and can result in a number of saved lives if they become adopted by more people.
• Wear a PFD or Lifejacket
• Don’t Drink & Boat
• Take a Boating Course
• Be Prepared, Both You and Your Vessel
• Be Wary of the Dangers of Cold Water Immersion
This year’s safety week runs from May 14-24.
