National Safe Boating Week is going on now.
The awareness campaign's primary purpose is to inform boaters of the importance of wearing a life jacket.
Sergeant Rick Smail is with the Mozingo Water and Grounds Patrol.
He says life jackets are something every boater should think about before going on the water.
According to the US Coast Guard, drowning causes two-thirds of all boating deaths.
