'Wear Your Life Jacket to Work Day' encourages boating safety

Posted: Updated:

Whether you work on the water or not, you may want to strap on your life jacket when you head to the office Friday.

The Lake Superior Maritime Visitor Center calls Friday "Wear Your Life Jacket to Work Day." 

They want to remind people of the dangerous situation you can find yourself in if you leave your life jacket behind when you hit the waters. 

By wearing it to work, they hope people will be more comfortable choosing to wear their life jacket when it matters. 

The event comes just in time for National Safe Boating Week, which starts Saturday.
