=====Arizona Auxiliarists to Distribute PFDs to Boaters=====

Tom Nunes, Arizona State Liaison Officer, met with Kevin Bergerson, Boating Law Administrator, and Ed Huntsman, Education Manager, to review recent and future events as well as mutual needs. Because of the meeting, Games and Fishery will be buying five cases of TYPE IV PFDs for the Auxiliary to distribute to boaters who need them. These Type IVs will only be distributed to people found to not have one on VSCs and when towing, etc.


=====Lake Havasu Initiates **Designated Operator** Boater Safety Campaign=====

One of the nation's premier fresh water boating destinations, Lake Havasu City, Arizona, is confronting an age-old boating safety problem head-on; operating a recreational pleasure boat under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance. In marine law enforcement parlance, the offense is known as OUI, operating under the influence. In Arizona, the maximum legal limit is .08 percent blood alcohol concentration for boat operators, the same as it is for driving an automobile.


"We're determined to significantly reduce the number of intoxicated boaters on Lake Havasu," commented Jim Salscheider, Executive Director of the Lake Havasu Marine Association, the organization that is spearheading the new "carry a designated operator" campaign. "All we're asking is that every boat designate one on-board person to be responsible for operating the boat on that day who is not going to consume an alcoholic beverage or ingest a controlled substance while on the water. It's a campaign that has been successful in reducing the number of highway accidents, now it's time for the boating community to embrace the same philosophy."
According to recent U.S. Coast Guard statistics, approximately one-third of all fatal recreational boating accidents nationwide are alcohol related. Kevin Bergersen, Law Enforcement Programs Coordinator and State Boating Law Administrator for Arizona Game and Fish said, "Boaters operating a vessel under the influence is an ongoing safety issue with all too often tragic consequences. Drunk boating is drunk driving. This grass roots effort between state law enforcement agencies, the Lake Havasu boating community and business supporters will help boat operators understand that the Arizona penalties of watercraft operation and driving a vehicle while impaired are almost the same."
The first awareness of this new safety campaign has already begun. Six-foot by four-foot "carry a designated operator" signs have been posted at several prominent public launch ramps around Lake Havasu. "Our first sign just went up at Windsor Beach launch ramp," said Salscheider, "and will be followed by several more at other key boating ramps and facilities. The initial phase of this campaign is to create some recognition and get people thinking about being more responsible when boating. We don't want to spoil anybody's fun on-the-water, but operating a boat while impaired is a serious safety hazard. It doesn't seem like too great a sacrifice to ask just one person on-board to forego alcohol for a one day. It's certainly worth saving a life."
The "carry a designated operator" campaign will continue to accelerate as the 2011 boating season approaches. In addition to signage at major launch ramps, the program will be supported with an aggressive marketing strategy including articles, ads and press releases in prominent boating publications, local radio PSAs, consumer boat show exposure, email blasts to known boaters, website links and social networking, and support from waterfront restaurants and bars.
"I'm very gratified by all the support this campaign has received in such a short period of time," remarked Salscheider. "Funding for this effort has initially come from private business. Hall of Champions boat racer and safety advocate Bob Teague of Teague Custom Marine has graciously agreed to be our spokesperson, lending significant credibility to what we are trying to accomplish. And the cooperation by all facets of law enforcement have only strengthened our resolve to make a difference in creating a safer Lake Havasu for all boaters."
The Lake Havasu "carry a designated operator" campaign is co-sponsored by Romer Beverage Company of Lake Havasu and Teague Custom Marine, Valencia, California. Supporting agencies include: Arizona Game and Fish, Arizona State Parks, Mohave County Sheriff, Lake Havasu City Police, and San Bernardino County Sheriff-Coroner Department. Participating restaurants/bars include Pirate Cove Resort and the Turtle Grille/Nautical Beachfront Resort. "Carry a designated operator" was founded by the Lake Havasu Marine Association and is responsible for its implementation.

=====Wear It California Pilot Program=====

Northern California, as a pilot program, began the “Wear It California” three years ago. At that time the average wear rate in open motor boats was 6% for past 10 years, similar to the rest of the country. After three years of the campaign, life jacket wear rate was increased to 15% in 2009.


First Year – Educate about inflatable life jackets (pledge cards with a free inflatable life jacket); distributed 675; over 100,000 people were exposed in various campaigns; 8.7 million impressions with radio/TV/movie ads. Survey at end of campaign: Increase from 18% in 2008 to 40% in 2009. This is a 122% increase in one year.

=====Operation: Life Jacket for Life Tour 2010=====

This operation will be a joint effort between the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), the Coast Guard (USCG) and local partners to include the CG Auxiliary, USPS, Maritime Enforcement agencies, and vendors.

The operation will be a tour of participating marine units down the ICW, highlighting the importance of life jacket wear and safety equipment aboard a recreational vessel and run concurrently with National Safe Boating Week.

The Starting date is scheduled for Sunday, May 23 and ending Friday May 28. The Kick Off is planned for Sister's Creek, North Side Boat Ramp, ICW Jacksonville. Nightly stops are planned for Daytona ,Titusville , Ft. Pierce , West Palm , Pompano Beach and ending at Watson Island in Miami.

A lead vessel, the WEAR IT FLORIDA Campaign FWC jet boat will head the group of additional vessels such as police, fire, CG, CG Auxiliary, USPS, etc. Public event stops will include boating safety equipment give-a-ways, and media stops will consist of a brief description of this tour. The CGD7 BAT-PAK trailer will accompany the tour.

The main thrust for Auxiliary participants will be to help publicize the tour with local media, distribute fliers throughout the RBSPV contacts, plan for VSC at the stops, and participate with facilities on the tour.

This message is just an alert message, meant to acquaint you with the tour so that you can plan to participate with your flotillas. If Auxiliarists have questions, I am the person to contact. I will direct them to the appropriate officers in CCGD7 and FWC. I hope you and your units can get behind this effort, we hope to promote boating safety to the utmost during the tour.
=====BOATING ADVISORY TRAILER PUBLIC AWARENESS KIT (BAT-PAK)=====

====An outstanding recreational boating safety training aid====

{{ wiki:BatpakDisplay.jpg?250|BAT-PAK Display in Atlanta, Sammy’s Den, Oscar, Jack}}
By

Bruce Wright, RBS Specialist District 7


Stacey Wright, 070 06 11


Bill Griswold, 070 04 03


In 2005, Bruce and Stacey Wright conceived the BAT-PAK, and within two years, the dream came true. Funded in part by the Office of Boating Safety, CG Headquarters, the 24’ Wells Cargo trailer took shape. Two large doors reveal the boating safety display, put together by Bruce and Stacey, building it by hand and adding smart graphics explaining various pieces of equipment and their capabilities.
{{wiki:BATPAKCrew.jpg ?250|BAT-PAK Crew – Bruce & Stacey Wright}}

Initially, the display included a hydraulically operated boat simulator requiring a lanyard attached to a life jacket to operate and a TV screen to give realistic on water “feeling”. Unfortunately, the hydraulic system proved to be a high maintenance item and that display was retired. BAT-PAK also has a built in bunk room so it can be set up at remote parks without nearby lodging. An on board generator keeps the display humming, and powers computers, cell phones, etc.


The trailer weighs in at 10,000 pounds and is pulled by a GSA leased Ford Dually Crew Cab truck. Wrapped graphics which prominently display the Wear It logo, plus other messages such as Boat Responsibly and America’s Waterway Watch cover the trailer. The Wrights form the 2 person crew and wear Tournament Shirts, resembling NASCAR drivers, matching white pants and tennis shoes. The display logs about 100 days a year on the road, carrying the boating safety message to a wide variety of events throughout the Seventh CG District. It is designed to fit in a C-130 cargo bay in case funds are available to take it to the islands of the Seventh.
Some of the events have included Boat Shows in Atlanta, Tampa, Fort Myers, Jacksonville, Miami, Savannah and Charleston, SC. The BAT-PAK is on the road during National Safe Boating Week, the July 4 holiday, career days, seafood festivals, antique boat shows, sporting events and at retail outlets featuring boating equipment, such as West Marine stores and Bass Pro shops. The thrust of the display is to attend events local flotillas are engaged in, supporting them while reaching out to the public.
{{ wiki:DSC01007.jpg?250|Bruce Wright with a Seafood Festival princess}}

Annually the display is refined to represent the latest in safety concerns. Most recent are displays on dive safety, paddle sport, flare safety and an interactive Digital Selective Calling Panel Display to help boaters to gain a better understanding of DSC. In addition to adding this to the BAT-PAK, Bruce has arranged to send a similar display to each District Sector.


Currently, the display features:

Flare Display and interactive panel

CO and Propeller Danger Display – with a mock up transom, exhaust, prop

Various Inflatable Life Jackets are displayed, one has one half inflated, the other half stowed

EPRIBS & PLB’s, with descriptions of their capabilities

Strobe lights and Fire Extinguishers

The two person BAT-PAK crew can be augmented by local volunteers who have current knowledge of State and Federal Boating Laws and regulations.
Replacing the boat simulator is Sammy’s Den, an interactive Kids Center located in the aft part of the trailer. Sammy the Sea Otter lives here, he is an interactive remote controlled Robot Character that can speak to children, adults, and converse with them. In addition, there is a full size Sammy the Sea Otter costume on board. Sammy’s Den also features a Flat Panel 52” monitor for using DVD and interactive gaming consoles. Navigation related Wii games provides kids opportunities to understand navigation buoys and life jacket wear. Other Sammy activities include coloring books featuring water safety and soap boat building to understand buoyancy.
The diving display features Oscar the Dive Mannequin displaying all the latest in dive safety gear, and of course Jack, the 8 foot inflatable life jacket. An external sound system helps at boat show presentations.
The BAT-PAK has been featured in conjunction with Florida Fish and Wildlife’s Life Jacket for Life Tour and has logged an average of 17,000 miles annually over the last 4 years. 900,000 people experienced a Venue Impact Awareness (persons who view the various safety messages) by seeing the display last year, over 2.5 million over the last 4 years. A new coloring book will be launched, designed from entries to a contest for school children throughout the District during a Safe Boating Week/BAT-PAK initiative.
Bruce and Stacey Wright have contributed countless hours and weekends taking this marvelous display around the District. Visitors, young and old learn so much by looking at the displays and talking to the crew. This has been a terrific asset to the boating safety message, and could be copied in your area. If you ever get the chance to see this BAT-PAK, don’t pass it up.
