Coast Guard prepares to teach boating safety across Alaska
from Juneau Empire
Alaska is proportionally the most dangerous state for boating, according to Coast Guard statistics, and the Coast Guard is doing something about it. To combat the fierce weather, frigid water and high rates of boating activity., the Coast Guard sends dozens of trained Coast Guardsmen to schools across Alaska during the months of late winter to teach schoolchildren how to survive crashes and capsizings in the perennially cold waterways of Alaska’s interior and coasts.
