Lifejacket message afloat
Kiwis are not invincible and more will
die on the water if they don't wear
That's the message the New Zealand
Coastguard is trying to get across to
people in south Auckland.
Statistics show that of the 85 people
who drowned in 2010, 27 were from
the Coastguard's northern region.
Many of those deaths could have
been prevented if people had been
wearing lifejackets, it says.
To try to educate people and help
save lives, northern region volunteers
are launching the inaugural Lifejacket
Awareness Day on October 30 at
Region education manager Darren
Arthur says education is critical to cre-
ating a better understanding of the
importance of wearing lifejackets.
Kiwis often think they're invincible
and that they don't need lifejackets but
when they come across difficulty on
the water the lack of one poses a real
risk to their lives,'' he says.
The day is aimed at changing that
kind of thinking.
It includes free mini-seminars, spot
prizes to be won with a pebble hunt, a
colouring competition, touch rugby and
a free sausage sizzle.
The event starts at 11am at the
Kawakawa Bay boat ramp.
