The Coast Guard and Coast Guard Auxiliary have teamed up to launch "Operation Paddle Smart"
Operation Paddle Smart’s goal is to educate paddle-sport enthusiasts how to stay safe, be responsible boaters & help emergency responders in search and rescue (SAR) type situations. Its goal is to make your boating season safer & more enjoyable as well as help recover your property if lost & could help save lives. When small craft such as kayaks or canoes are found adrift, typically there is no way of determining whether or not individuals may be in distress. In such situations, having timely access to some basic information can make all the difference between wasting valuable SAR (Search And Rescue) resources and saving lives. With the increase of kayakers and watercraft enthusiasts getting out on the water, the number of vessels found adrift without its pilot have also increased. As a result the Coast Guard spends hundreds of thousands of dollars each year engaged in search and rescue operations for cases where nobody is in danger to begin with.
It is an awesome responsibility
