of Natural Resources wants people to continue to boat safely this Memorial holiday.
DNR rangers are
out monitoring the boaters, conducting safety a check, making sure everyone has
life jackets and the proper safety equipment on board.
"As the captain of
the vessel, you should take responsibility in making sure these items are in
your vessel at all times. Also want to check everyone is safely operating a
vessel that is not under the influence of alcohol," said Eric White, ranger.
They say to also watch for other boaters and people that may be
fishing or anchored along the waterways.
So far, the DNR
has only issued two boating under the influence citations.
