NEWS RELEASE: National Safe Boating Week

May 20 through 26, 2017 is National Safe Boating Week. The volunteer membership of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary Guam Flotilla 140-02-24, together with the United States Coast Guard, Guam Police Department, Guam Fire Department, Guam Customs and Quarantine, Guam Homeland Security, NOAA, NOAA Weather, Guam Department of Agriculture, Sea Grant, Guam Water Kids, Underwater World, and local marine dealers want to remind local boaters to have the proper gear, and when it comes to life jackets to always, “Wear It!”

The public is invited to attend the celebration of Guam Safe Boating Week, part of the 2017 North American Safe Boating Campaign. Sponsored jointly by the U.S. Coast Guard, USCG Auxiliary, and the National Safe Boating Council, the safe boating activities are designed to increase the awareness of safety for boaters and water enthusiasts.  This campaign will kick-off with a Proclamation signing on May 19, 2017 issued by the Lt. Gov. Raymond Tenorio.

A legislative resolution introduced by Senator Telena Nelson will also be presented during the annual National Safe Boating Display at the Agana Shopping Center on Sunday, May 21, 2017.  The display will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and feature safety equipment and capabilities of each participating agency. 

In an effort to promote safe recreational boating, the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary will continue its volunteer service by providing safe boating information.  Those interested in a free vessel safety check may also contact the USCG Auxiliary.

The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary is the uniformed volunteer component of the United States Coast Guard created by an Act of Congress in 1939. The Auxiliary assists the Coast Guard in many of its missions. For more information, visit or e-mail the Guam Flotilla National Safe Boating Week Activities Chairperson, Dr. Matilda Naputi Rivera at
