You’ll be hearing a lot about safe boating over the next couple of weeks. National Safe Boating Week is coming up May 19th through 25th.
Captain John Hotz of the Missouri Highway Patrol says they’ll have several activities planned in the coming days to help get you ready for a safe, fun summer on the water. Those will include inspection points all across the state where you can make sure your vessel is water-ready. They’ll also be holding a number of boater education courses so you can get your required boater safety card before hitting the water.
