The American Canoe Association (ACA) has completed the development and production of an excellent informational video titled:
Life Jackets Float. Do You?
The answer to this question is both entertaining and eye opening as we discover the many challenges moving water presents. Vertical Currents, holes, strainers, foot entrapment, cold water…these are hazards that the ever changing river throws at us. As the host sorts all this out, we come to realize that a lifejacket, properly worn, is the essentials tool for enjoying it all.
Screened at the 2009 International Boating and Water Safety Summit, this entertaining and educational video is an excellent educational tool that should become a staple resource for your library.
