FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The City of Fort St. John proclaimed May 19th as Wear Your Lifejacket at Work Day at a council meeting on Monday.
Wear Your Lifejacket at Work Day is meant to promote the importance of wearing a lifejacket when on the water rather than keeping it close by on the boat.
More than 160 Canadians drown while boating each year, with 90 per cent of them not wearing lifejackets properly, according to the Canadian Red Cross.
The North Peace Leisure Pool is holding a photo contest on May 19th to help promote the importance of correct lifejacket use.
Community members who choose to wear their lifejackets to work on Wear Your Lifejacket to Work Day can submit a photo to win coffee and treats brought to their work.
Details on the contest can be found at facebook.com/CityFSJRecreation
