A life jacket is essential gear near or around water and is used for keeping a person afloat. The Sutton Lake Project received Sea Tow Foundation Life Jackets for the 2020 boating season and built a Life Jacket Loaner Station. The Sutton Lake Life Jacket Loaner Station was placed at Bee Run beach area to be available to anyone needing a life jacket. The sizes range from infant, child, youth, adult universal, and adult oversize. These jackets are available for the visiting public to enhance their safety while boating or swimming at Sutton Lake. We ask that participants return the jackets at visits end, so that others may have a safe trip to the lake.
The Sea Tow Foundation’s Life Jacket Loaner Program is part of a federal grant project that is funded by the Sport Fish and Boating Trust Fund as administered by the U.S. Coast Guard. These life jackets are used for loaner stations and or water safety programs.
The Life Jacket Loaner Station will be opened May 1, 2021 and will be available to any individual needing a life jacket. Anyone 12 and under must have a life jacket on when a boat is underway. Aboard every vessel, including kayaks and stand-up paddle boards for each passenger; there must be a correct size life jacket. Anyone on a jet ski regardless of age, must have a life jacket on. Please Wear It!
